The mission of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is to provide expert, compassionate care to children and adults with cancer while advancing the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure, and prevention of cancer and related diseases. As an affiliate of Harvard Medical School and a Comprehensive Cancer Center designated by the National Cancer Institute, the Institute also provides training for new generations of physicians and scientists, designs programs that promote public health particularly among high-risk and underserved populations, and disseminates innovative patient therapies and scientific discoveries to our target community across the United States and throughout the world.
Volunteering at Dana-Farber is a rewarding and enriching experience. DFCI staff, donors, and volunteers all work toward a common goal of defeating cancer. As a supplemental resource for patients, families, and staff, volunteers are closely linked to this mission. Volunteers are committed and reliable people who make a very real difference, regardless of where they work.
Volunteer Services at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is committed to providing compassionate, well-trained, resourceful volunteers to assist staff, patients, their family and friends. We are dedicated to complementing the Institute staff in patient care and operations, while offering the volunteer opportunities for personal and professional development. Volunteers do not replace or substitute staff, but instead offer ancillary support to maximize the Institute's commitment to quality service and care.
