In May 1948, a nationwide radio audience first heard a twelve-year-old cancer patient known only as "Jimmy" as he was visited bedside by members of his beloved Boston Braves baseball team. An appeal for support followed, and since that moment, the Jimmy Fund has helped physician-scientists and staff at Boston's world-renowned Dana-Farber Cancer Institute provide the best cancer treatment available to children and adults today while developing cures for tomorrow.

The Jimmy Fund of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute documents the history of "New England's favorite charity" from the 1940s and 1950s, when celebrities such as Bob Hope and Jimmy Durante drummed up support for institute founder Dr. Sidney Farber, to the fund's ongoing relationship with the Boston Red Sox and such baseball stars as Ted Williams. Readers will discover how these efforts-and the generations of New Englanders plunking coins into movie canisters or biking, golfing, skiing, and walking for the cause-have helped raise more than $200 million and save countless lives. The Jimmy Fund of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute captures each step of this remarkable journey, including the uplifting 1998 return of Einar "Jimmy" Gustafson to Dana-Farber after fifty years of anonymity and presumed death.

Anyone whose life has been touched by cancer will appreciate this wonderfully chronicled journey of "true heros" in the fight against cancer. From Dr. Sidney Farber's early successes in achieving temporary remission in pediatric patients to the long-standing support from the Boston Braves (now Boston Red Sox) that helped make "The Jimmy Fund" a household name.
The vivid collection of pictures takes you through the half a century of support from sports stars and celebrities who came to visit Dr. Farber's clinic and his patients. Ted Williams' quiet devotion to The Jimmy Fund Clinic's young patients is heartwarming, and his public support brought about much needed attention and funding.
In looking at these early photos of children at The Jimmy Fund Clinic, you realize that sadly many of them died from their disease. Today, because of Dr. Farber, and the support from so many who continue to support New England's favorite charity, cure rates for certain children's cancers have reached over 80 percent. The author did a tremendous job in assembling the vast selection of photos, which alone, tell quite a story.

If you know the Boston Red Sox, you know the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber. One of the true treasures of Boston and New England and this book is a great introduction or a enjoyable refresher.
