To find a cure for breast cancer we must fund new ideas
With this in mind, we are thrilled to introduce three new grant recipients!
The Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Foundation recently granted three doctors funding. Their projects and values align with our mission to raise funds for research and education to prevent breast cancer and improve outcomes for individuals with breast cancer.
Please meet Drs. Chen, Liu and Stemple.
Peiwen Chen, PhD
Assistant Professor & Neurological Surgery, Lurie Cancer Center of Northwestern University
Dr. Chen will employ integrated strategies to reveal whether and how TAM reprogramming contributes to breast cancer brain metastasis. He also plans to determine how TAM reprogramming can synergize with immune checkpoint inhibitors to suppress brain metastasis of breast cancer.
Huiping Liu, MD, PhD
Associate Professor, Pharmacology, Lurie Cancer Center of Northwestern University
Dr. Liu is working to advance breakthrough technologies, apply unprecedented single-cell mass spectrometry to breast cancer research, and target circulating tumor stem cells that mediate metastasis. Her ultimate goal is to synergize bedside and bench discoveries for development of new biomarkers and novel therapeutics.
Lisa Stempel, MD
Assistant Professor, Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, Rush University
Dr. Stempel is focused on automating methods to continuously measure breast cancer detection rates for different types of breast imaging. This is an important quality measure of any breast cancer screening program. She will then compare the cancer detection rates for different risk-based sub-populations and use this data to refine local screening recommendations. This novel approach could have a significant impact on the future of breast cancer screening research and guideline development.
Wine & dine Mom this Mother’s Day at one of our Lettuce Entertain You partners or spoil her with a gift from one of our retail partners. Oh and did we mention some of the proceeds will be donated to the foundation? You can thank us later 😉
Every time you purchase a Luxe Bloom Rose Arrangement and use the code LYNNSAGELOVE, 15% of the sales will be donated to Lynn Sage.
This year, 25% of each Strong Hearted Medallion purchase will be donated to Lynn Sage. This necklace is a talisman of strength, courage, and resilience.
Join us at MARCUS Chicago for an evening of shopping, cocktails, and giving back. 20% of all proceeds will be donated back to Lynn Sage!
When: Tomorrow, June 12
Time: 6pm - 9pm
Where: 110 East Delaware Place, Chicago
A very special thank you.
Give hope. Give back.
Your support funds research and education to prevent breast cancer and improve outcomes for everyone diagnosed with breast cancer.
