Hi Everyone,

We hope that you are all well and looking forward to a nice Summer.


We are pleased to share that former Lynn Sage Scholar, Dr. Virginia Kaklamani has recently published a report titled "Adiponectin pathway polymorphisms and risk of breast cancer in African Americans and Hispanics in the Women's Health Initiative."  We could not be more proud of the work Dr. Kaklamani has done in the name of Lynn Sage and in the fight to eradicate breast cancer.  Please learn more about her amazing work by reading the published report here:


We are also pleased to announce that we have launched a brand new website.  Please be sure to visit the website and keep up with us and our work against breast cancer at


The Lynn Sage Foundation has been busy as we continue to raise funds for crucial breast cancer research and our current scholar, Dr. Chonghui Cheng.  Our annual Mother’s Day eCard campaign was  a great success, raising over  $30,000 with the help of generous donors and our corporate sponsor, Beecken Petty O'Keefe & Co.


The Lynn Sage Foundation Associate Board will be hosting a Summer Kickoff Event in Chicago at RM Champagne Salon on Thursday, June 13th from 5:30-7:30 PM. Tickets can be purchased for $25 at


As Lynn Sage Scholar Dr. Cheng continues her hard work and research, investigating the biological components and pathways that control tumor metastasis and recurrence, we will continue to work tirelessly in The Lynn Sage Foundation office to raise the funds necessary to fund this research.


Please keep up with The Lynn Sage Foundation by visiting us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.


Thank you for your generous support in the fight against breast cancer. Together we can find a cure.


Best wishes for a wonderful summer,


Laura & Halee Sage
