Santa Claus, also known as Jonathan Meath, says kids all want the same thing: toys! And it’s no different for the kids he visited at the Jimmy Fund Clinic at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute this week.

“These kids have been through a lot,” Meath says. "They understand that the whole team is working towards helping them get better. It’s not about miracles, it’s about medicine. And that's good. Santa in his place. Doctors in their place."
