The Lynn Sage Foundation Spring Report

Hi Everyone,

We are so grateful for your generous support and hope that you will join us in our continued fight against breast cancer in 2013. 

As we reflect on 2012, we could not be more proud of the innovative research being conducted on behalf of The Lynn Sage Foundation.  As always, we continue to raise crucial funds to support research in an effort to find a cure for breast cancer.

In 2012, The Lynn Sage Foundation established an Associate Board comprised of young professionals committed to raising funds for breast cancer research in the name of Lynn Sage.   This was accomplished with the help of corporate sponsor Mesirow Financial.  With the support of this board, along with our original group of supporters, we hosted our inaugural Chill After Party.  This new event was a huge success in engaging a new generation of donors.

2012 also brought the second year of funding for Dr. Cheng.  Dr. Cheng's lab focuses on investigating the biological components and pathways that control tumor metastasis and recurrence, which represent the two major obstacles in the successful treatment of cancer.

As we launch into 2013 we are looking forward to funding our 4th Lynn Sage Scholar.  This year, as we work with Northwestern University to choose a promising young investigator as our next Lynn Sage Scholar, we continue to develop our fundraising initiatives with the hope that as soon as 2014, we will be able to fund two Lynn Sage Scholars working toward our goal of eradicating breast cancer.  New areas that we are eager to support include nutrition and epidemiology. 

Our next major fundraising campaign occurs this Spring.  In celebration of Mother's Day we hold our annual campaign where donors make a donation in honor of their loved one and send a thoughtful eCard in time for Mother's Day.  In conjunction with this campaign, we will be introducing a newly designed website ( enhancing communication with our supporters.  You can also keep up with us on Facebook ( and LinkedIn ( to receive the latest news on our research, scholars, events and fundraising initiatives.

Without your support, important breast cancer research would not be possible. Thank you. Together, we can make a difference and eradicate this disease.  .

Warmest regards,

Laura & Halee Sage
