Who Does Bakes for Breast Cancer Fund?

Grants for breast cancer research are at an all-time low. That’s why — since 1999 — we’ve funded 20 up-and-coming breast cancer researchers, including:

Dr. Veda Giri

Yale School of Medicine and Yale Cancer Center

Dr. Rachel Freedman

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Dr. Shom Goel

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Dr. Heather Parsons

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Scientists depend on funds raised from donations throughout their communities. For me personally, much of this support has come from Bakes for Breast Cancer.

Our Mission

No parent should lose a child, no child should lose a parent, no spouse should lose a spouse, and no friend should lose a friend to breast cancer. Our mission is to end cancer by funding cancer prevention and treatment research. The money we raise enables oncologists to start their research. (This is the first step in the process.) From there, they can go to the next step where bigger grants are available.

Our Impact

Over the past 25 years, Bakes For Breast Cancer has made breast cancer research possible. And that’s thanks to everyone who’s baked, eaten, donated, sponsored, and volunteered.
