It was summer of 2016 when I started having problems eating the same foods I used to eat all the time. One night after eating dinner, I was lying in bed, trying to fall asleep, when a started to get intense stomach pains. It was my first time experiencing this and was quite painful that I started crying. Then I rushed to the bathroom and felt all better afterwards; no more pains. My first thought was that I had some weird illness that was affecting my insides. Later on, I realized that it was a food problem when a started …

Bakes for Breast Cancer 2017 will support the research of Dr. Shom Goel
Although the term “physician-scientist” has become a buzzword in medical research, there are actually only a few people around who successfully combine a career in the clinic, taking care of breast cancer patients, with laboratory research. Dr Shom Goel is one such person – a breast cancer oncologist at the Dana-Farber who divides his time between the laboratory bench and the patient’s bedside. This year, we will be funding Dr. Goel and his research that addresses the important question – “Why are some breast cancers resistant to the …
Dana-Farber scientists this year identified a promising new drug for a form of breast cancer and discovered one way the disease can outmaneuver the drug. The findings, reported in the journal Nature, may lead to a more farsighted treatment strategy for breast cancers classified as “triple-negative” – one that uses drug combinations to both arrest the disease and prevent it from resisting front-line therapies. The dual approach could significantly extend patient survival times, the authors say.

In recognition of all of the researchers who dedicate their life to finding a cure for cancer in all of its form, and in dedication to those who continue to fight it, Cancer Control Month is to commemorate a battle for a future free from cancer. (Presidential Proclamation))

In 1990, when we started The Eva Brownman Breast Cancer Fund at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, we provided seed money for the tamoxifen research being done by Dr. Judy Garber. Dr. Garber was then a young investigator.
