Jimmy Fund

A children's cancer fund that has been responsible for highly significant work, especially on chemotherapy, that has reduced the death rate with some childhood cancers — particularly, the most common form of leukemia in children — from 90% to 10%. The Fund was started by Dr. Sidney Farber, the father of modern chemotherapy.
