The Boston House: Hope and Healing for Children with Cancer opened its doors in Brookline in 1979 as the Boston Ronald McDonald House, establishing itself as the eighth House in the country. The Boston House, which changed its name but not its mission in 2017, is a home-away-from-home for families of children ages birth through 21 being treated for cancer at Boston Children's Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's Jimmy Fund Clinic and other area hospitals. Families live with us while their children are inpatients, undergoing surgery, chemotherapy and bone marrow transplants. They also stay while the children receive outpatient treatment such as radiation therapy and many types of chemotherapy.
