Staff from Thornton Law Firm joined the Boston Red Sox and Jimmy Fun fans in celebrating Opening Day at Fenway Park on Monday, April 13. By making a donation to the Jimmy Fund, employees were able to wear their Red Sox gear to work and support the fight against cancer at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.


Since 1948, the Jimmy Fund has raised millions of dollars towards advancing Dana-Farber’s life saving mission.The money raised through this rally helps make patient experiences at Dana-Farber a little easier and provides revenue for groundbreaking cancer discoveries. In 2013, Dana-Farber volunteers spent 23,542 hours providing compassionate care, support and comfort to patients and their families.

Dana-Farber’s goal is to eradicate cancer, AIDs, and related diseases. As an affiliate of Harvard Medical School and a world-wide leader in the fight against cancer, Dana-Farber also provides training for new generations of physicians and scientists while designing programs to promote public health.
