Cancer treatment is never fun, but Cheryl St. Onge figures if she has to go through it, she’s doing it with style — and smiles.
Each time the breast cancer patient arrives at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center at Milford Regional Medical Center for her infusion visit, she wears a different themed outfit. One time she was a cowgirl with boots, hat, and a fringed vest; another time she came ready for a Hawaiian luau with the appropriate loud shirt and lei. Last month she was a nurse in scrubs.

The emails we get and stories we hear from those we don’t know are always very special to us. We had the opportunity to hear from a lovely young woman who wanted to bake goods for those who contacted her, deliver them to their offices so they could have a little bake sale. The funds she received would go to Bakes for Breast Cancer.
We had the chance to meet this lovely young woman and what an inspiration she was to us! We talked about ways she can get involved with our organization. In the near future you will hear more …

This was the last blog Peter Devereaux sent to us last month. It is with heavy hearts we share Peter’s last blog again in light of his recent passing at the age of 52 from male breast cancer.
For us, Peter was a beacon of light and an inspiration to anyone who had the wonderful opportunity to know and meet him. For me, meeting Peter was indeed a special gift I will hold in my heart forever.
Peter was a true fighter both in the ring and out of the ring; a hero who not only served his country bravely but …
Everyone faces stress from time to time, but a cancer diagnosis can be particularly challenging for both the patient and the family members.
“For many of our patients and survivors, they experience a great deal of stress related to
their diagnosis, treatment, or fears of recurrence,” says Eric Zhou, PhD, clinical psychology fellow at Dana-Farber’s Perini Family Survivors’ Center. “But they also have general life stresses on top of that, like family, finances, and work, that don’t go away just because they’re battling cancer.”
Zhou, who leads Dana-Farber’s Survivor Stress Management and Relaxation Training (SMART) workshops, provides some tips on how to …
Young women with fewer financial resources are more likely to experience long delays between the time they detect a breast abnormality and the time they get a diagnosis, a recent study shows. Initially launched to help researchers better understand why breast cancers are more deadly in young women, the study was led by Ann Partridge, MD, MPH, a breast oncologist in the Susan F. Smith Center for Women’s Cancers at Dana-Farber, and Kathryn Ruddy, MD, MPH, formerly of Dana-Farber and now at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
The study involved 585 women under age 40 who had recently been diagnosed …
For many Independence Day is the start of the very short summer season but it is the birth of American independence in which we celebrate in grand style with parades, fireworks, concerts and of course barbecues!
The American flag waves proudly and our desserts are red, white and blue! We gather with friends and family and celebrate in American style.
We thank those who fought for our independence and those who serve our country to keep us safe and protected. The sacrifices that were and are made are appreciated by all that enjoy not only Independence Day but also everyday.
We at Bakes …
