During his career, Ted Williams made countless unreported visits to the Jimmy Fund clinic, not just stopping by to say hi but actually staying and spending time with kids, helping them with their homework, talking about hitting, promising home runs and brightening their worlds. He was the single most influential person in helping to raise money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, which still thrives today.
What better way to celebrate the birthday of Ted Williams than to give to the Jimmy Fund today.
