Save the Date for Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer May 5-11!

It is hard to imagine 15 years ago a new event was crated that crossed every socioeconomic demographics and let anyone and everyone help in the fight against breast cancer by simply buying a dessert!  We called it Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer.  It had a catchy ring to it even though if you say it five times fast it becomes a tongue twister.
Small things come in good packages and never could we have imagined how we would grow from 42 participants in our first year to last year over 300 participants in over 90 Massachusetts communities.  Although our name …

How the Internet Changed Breast Cancer Awareness

With broadband internet, you can find information about just about anything online. But it’s not all Facebook and games. Breast cancer patients can use the Web to find out information and statistics about their diagnosis – but the abundance of information available online is a double-edged sword.
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 …

335 in 113 in 2013!

Boston is in the process of healing. It will take time.  Strong and united Boston stands.  Listening to Stephen Colbert talk about Boston and who we are, humorous but true! Hearing the national anthem being sung at the Bruin game last night shows our unity and spirit.  
The victims and their families are always in our thoughts.  It is still unimaginable but the strength of the community will unite everyone.  We will be dealing with this for a long time to come.  Next year, the Boston Marathon will be bigger and better than ever. 
Fundraisers have begun to help and of …
