We honestly don’t know where the time goes. Yesterday it seems summer just started and now the trees are bare. Breast Cancer Awareness Month came and went already! When you are young and in school the school year seems to last forever. As you get older, time goes quickly.
We did not write much about Breast Cancer Awareness Month because we feel Bakes for Breast Cancer is pink 24/7 365! All year long we are pink and work hard to raise money for breast cancer! There is not a day that goes by where we don’t work on our events- Boston …
Hello! My name is Michelle Nigro and I’m thrilled for the opportunity to start volunteering with Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer. I’m 23 years old from the Boston area and I am passionate about breast cancer awareness and fundraising.

Finding Information on the Internet
The internet is a great way for people to find out more on breast cancer, including risks, signs and symptoms, and treatment options. This is especially important for people who may not have family doctors or who may be too timid to speak up during appointments. Information available online may …
I could feel the vibrations through my pocket , the never ending buzz caused me to stop in my tracks . My voicemail begins to play , and the heaviness in my father’s voice fills the silence of the airy night. ” I have been trying to reach you , I know you must be working but I wanted to tell you that your mother was in the hospital earlier…call me when you get a chance” he said.
It was around 8:00 p.m. and I had just left work, I was walking to the train station to go home when I …

Young women with breast cancer often overestimate the odds that cancer will occur in their other, healthy breast, and decide to have the healthy breast surgically removed, a survey conducted by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute investigators indicates. The survey also shows that many patients opt for the procedure – known as a contralateral prophylactic mastectomy, or CPM – despite knowing it will be unlikely to improve their chance of survival.
