LSCRF is dedicated to raising funds that advance innovative research projects, educational programs, and patient care initiatives for breast cancer patients.  Aided by the contributions of partners and friends such as you, LSCRF is able to provide significant support to the Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Program at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University and to the Lynn Sage Comprehensive Breast Center at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Funded projects make a difference in understanding better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat breast cancer.

LSCRF works to increase awareness of the importance of early detection and treatment of breast cancer as well as to highlight the latest research and most effective care and treatment options. As these talented investigators explore a wide range of breast cancer-related questions, they are making discoveries that promise to further enhance the understanding of how breast cancer develops, behaves, and, ultimately, responds to various therapeutic interventions and educational programs. These findings, in turn, will help to further educate and empower the public as we all continue our efforts to prevent and fight breast cancer.

We will continue to chart a course toward the day when breast cancer is no match for our science, our pursuit of progress, and our unwavering commitment to finding a cure.

  • Research Grants
    Every grant provides seed funding for breast cancer researchers at Northwestern to test theories and develop innovative solutions – all with the hope of creating a cure for breast cancer, improving care and enhancing the overall experience.

  • Survivorship
    The Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Survivorship Program offers comprehensive care and management strategies for the unique challenges women treated for breast cancer face as they transition to post-treatment survivorship care. “From the moment of diagnosis through the balance of life, an individual diagnosed with cancer is a cancer survivor.”

  • Disparity of Care
    We are proud to partner with Sinai Urban Health Institute, to address the disparity of breast cancer care in the predominantly African American and Hispanic community of Chicago Lawn. This initiative will have a direct and positive effect on a group of Chicago women who are not currently being screened or treated for breast cancer.
