Finding a Cure for Breast Cancer With the Baldwin Family’s Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund
|SHARE THIS ARTICLE|
Carol M. Baldwin, is the Chairwoman of the Board of the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund on Long Island and the Fund in Central New York. She is also the mother of six children, four of whom are known as the Baldwin Brothers; Alec Baldwin, Billy Baldwin, Daniel Baldwin and Stephen Baldwin. A Syracuse native and graduate of Syracuse University, Carol M. Baldwin and her husband Alexander raised their family in Massapequa, Long Island.
In 1983, after 29 years of marriage, her husband died of lung cancer. Less than a decade later, in 1990, Carol was diagnosed with breast cancer. After undergoing a double mastectomy, Carol decided to help other women overcome the struggles associated with breast cancer. With the loving support from her family and friends and health professionals, they formed The Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund, Inc. to fight and ultimately win the battle against breast cancer. The Fund’s primary purpose is to provide the money so desperately needed for researchers seeking the causes, prevention and treatment of breast cancer.
The Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund, Inc., supports both new and established researchers investigating the causes, prevention and treatment of breast cancer. This research will include—but not be limited to—studies of the genetic, molecular, cellular and environmental factors involved in the development and progression of breast cancer; application of the knowledge thus gained to educate medical professionals and increase public awareness for the prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer; and studies of the outcomes of breast cancer detection and treatment on the patient, their families and society.
According to its website, to date, The Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund, has awarded more than 72 research grants totaling in excess of $4 million to medical research — with anticipation and excitement of doing more.
