Our Story

The Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation is one of the nation’s leading breast cancer research and education charities. It was founded in 1985 in memory of Lynn Sage, a Chicago-area woman who endured a six-year struggle with breast cancer before she died at the age of 39. Our mission is to support the understanding, research and treatment of breast cancer in partnership with Chicago’s Northwestern Memorial Hospital and the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University.

Following her death, a group of friends formed the foundation with a vow to cure this devastating disease. Today, 112 individuals serve on three boards in her memory.

Since its inception, LSCRF has raised nearly $30 million for breast cancer research, and with each dollar donated, the fight to cure breast cancer continues.
