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 and Researchers with the goal that these doctors will be able to secure larger grants as a result of their work. Thus far our seed funding has been successful. For instance, Dr. Craig Jordan, a past recipient, is considered the "Father of Tamoxifen", and Dr. Jacqueline Jeruss received several prestigious grants from the National Institutes of Health and now runs the breast cancer at University of Michigan.

Long-Term Impact

The Lynn Sage Breast Cancer 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 Scholars' and Researchers' work.
