Lynn Sage Foundation

The Lynn Sage Foundation was founded in honor and memory of Lynn Sage, a beloved mother, daughter, wife and native Chicagoan who tragically died at the age of 39 as a result of her battle with breast cancer. The family of Lynn Sage has been raising money for breast cancer research since soon after Lynn's death in 1984. The foundation is dedicated finding a cure for breast cancer in Lynn's honor.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month - October 2015

CHILL - November 12
CHILL - November 12

Dear Lynn Sage Supporters,

Happy October! As you probably know, October is breast cancer awareness month, and if you haven’t already you will soon start to see pink popping up all around your city. This month is special to us and we’ve got so many ways that you can get involved, both in Chicago and nationally.

What makes us different is that we fund researchers in the early stages of their careers, right here in Chicago. We even offer our supporters a chance to meet our scholars about once a year and tour their labs! Our current Lynn Sage Scholar, Dr. Athanassios Vassilopoulos, is continuing to conduct important research that focuses on the study of the genetic and biochemical connection between sirtuin genes and carcinogenesis as well as tumor cell resistance. To read more about Dr. Vassilopoulos’ research, click here.

We are looking for corporate partners to join us in the fight against breast cancer. Corporate sponsors are needed for each of our major annual events, and for your support your company will receive advertising on our website, social media, and other print/online channels. We’re currently looking for partners for 2016 and have a lot of opportunities available! If you would like more information on getting a custom proposal for your company, please let us know.

Individuals can join us, too, by participating in our upcoming online silent auction for CHILL: An International Culinary and Wine Event, which will take place at the Merchandise Mart on November 12. Stay connected with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and emails to be the first to know when the silent auction goes live on November 9! Do you have another idea for an event or fundraising campaign? Let us know! We’re always happy to help come up with ways to fundraise in your city!

Thank you, as always, for your generous support in the fight against breast cancer during October and the rest of the year. Together we can find a cure.

Warm regards,

Laura & Halee Sage
