Research and Care to Nourish the Soul.

At Bakes for Breast Cancer, Inc., we focus our effort on wellness and the power of healing that a positive message can create.  Well-being means being well in body, mind and soul. We treat every day of life as a gift worth celebrating and are committed to sharing this message with the community.

The US National Cancer Institute estimates that there are an estimated 200,000 new cases of breast cancer diagnosed a year.  No words can adequately describe the feelings a person has when battling a life threatening illness. When the dreaded disease darkens the doorway of a family member, friend, colleague or even a celebrity, it doesn’t discriminate. It just takes.  The best we can do is share support and pass on knowledge.

At Boston Bakes, we are thankful to be partnered with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and proud to have Dr. Winer, a leading cancer research specialist on our team.   Dr. Winer is the Director of Breast Oncology at the Susan F. Smith Center for Women’s Cancers; Thompson Senior Investigator in Breast Cancer ResearchProfessor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School.Dr. Winer received his MD from Yale University in 1983, and later completed training in internal medicine and served as chief resident at Yale-New Haven Hospital.
