Challenge

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women but also afflicts men and has touched most families. Almost 200,000 people/year are diagnosed in the US with this terrible disease. Almost 50,000 people die annually in the US from breast cancer. For $100,000/year we can support one Scholar's breast cancer research efforts to find a cure.

Solution

Donations to our cause provide funding for a core of Lynn Sage Scholarships with the goal that our Scholars will be able to secure larger grants as a result of their work. Thus far our seed funding has been successful. For instance, Dr. Jacqueline Jeruss, our Lynn Sage Scholar in 2007 and 2008, received several prestigious grants including the National Institutes of Health Research Project Grant (R01) entitled, "Measuring Signaling Pathway Dynamics During Tissue Growth and Hydrogels."

Long-Term Impact

The Lynn Sage Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for breast cancer and will continue raising funds and awareness of our cause until this objective has been met. Breast cancer prevention and treatment have been greatly improved because of past Lynn Sage Scholar's work.
