Alec Baldwin and his siblings, Stephen Baldwin, Daniel Baldwin, Elizabeth Keuchler, Billy Baldwin, and Jane Sasso, announced the news on Instagram “with the deepest regret.”
As part of their joint statement, Alec Baldwin shared his own memories of his mom, saying that she was a “fighter” as a breast cancer survivor.
“My mother taught me about second acts. And third ones, too,” he said. “She spent the last 25 years of her life as a fighter and a champion for the cause to which she devoted so much energy. We are all enormously proud of her accomplishments.”
Alec Baldwin’s family also shared details about Carol’s efforts to help raise millions of dollars to fight cancer.
“In 1991, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. After she survived, she joined with a group of Long Island-wide breast cancer support groups to launch an effort with SUNY Stony Brook,” their statement said.
“With the support of the university’s then president, Shirley Strum Kenny, the Carol M Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund was opened on the campus at Stony Brook. Another chapter was started some years later in cooperation with SUNY Upstate Universityv [sic]. The combined efforts have raised millions of dollars for the cause.”
