“We are on a mission to end breast cancer for good, one sweet treat at a time,” said Bakes for Breast Cancer founder Carol Sneider. “Providing seed money to make research possible is very rewarding. It helps those not only in our community, but beyond. We continue to grow which enables us to do more. I’m completely in awe of the people who support the venues and our organization in a number of other ways.”
Proceeds raised will benefit the nonprofit breast cancer organization Bakes for Breast Cancer which will support the research of Dr. Rachel Freedman. Dr. Freedman’s clinical trials will focus on treatment for older breast cancer patients, an area of research that has been vastly under subsidized. Since its inception in 1999, Bakes for Breast Cancer has raised over 2 million dollars. To date, over 4,500 different bakeries, cafés, pastry shops, supermarkets, and restaurants have participated throughout annual events in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Vermont and Cape & Islands.
