Barbara donates all of her proceeds from the sale of Uplift: Secrets of the Sisterhood of Breast Cancer Survivors and Does a Lobsterman Wear Pants? to her charitable foundation for breast cancer research. So far, the sale of these books has allowed the Barbara Delinsky Charitable Foundation to fund eight years of a research fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital. The focus of the fellowship is to launch the career of a surgical oncologist into research, hopefully offering returns to the field of cancer research for decades to come.
