Mother's Day during a difficult time

By Angie Fekrat | Executive Director

Mother’s Day has always been a meaningful day for The Lynn Sage Foundation.  However, it isn't always easy.  For those, including co-Founders Laura and Halee Sage, who have lost their mother to breast cancer, it can be an incredibly difficult holiday.  This year, many of us will be away from the loved ones we usually celebrate with on Mother’s Day, our mother, sisters, daughters, surrogate mothers, and aunts.  If you have a loved one that has experienced breast cancer, we ask you to consider donating to The Lynn Sage Foundation in their honor this Mother’s Day. 


COVID-19 has changed each of our lives drastically.  However, it won’t stop breast cancer or other diseases from occurring.  The National Cancer Institute estimates the 276,480 women in the US will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.  The need for private funding to progress cancer research remains high, at a time when the ability of nonprofits to fundraise has been greatly impaired by the effect of coronavirus. The Lynn Sage Foundation remains dedicated to investing in innovative research and supporting brilliant doctors working tirelessly to eradicate breast cancer. 


Our hearts go out to anyone that has been negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, whether in body, mind or spirit.  But, we also feel for everyone that has lost a loved one to breast cancer or that is currently experiencing breast cancer.  During this difficult time, if you are able, please consider contributing to improve the outcome of breast cancer for all current and future mothers.
