Carol Baldwin, mother of celebrity children and fierce advocate and fundraiser for breast cancer research, was admitted to the hospital last week and is being treated for pneumonia.
The 83-year-old Baldwin is the founder of The Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund, which has awarded more than 72 research grants totaling in excess of $4 million to medical research.
Baldwin survived a battle with cancer in 1990 and made it her goal to help other women that were fighting against the disease. Family members are concerned about her health - although they say Baldwin has indicated she wants to attend a weekend fundraiser featuring singer Benny Mardones. The event is Saturday at 1:00 p.m. at Sharkey's in Liverpool.
