The Lynn Sage Cancer Research FoundationThe Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation (LSCRF) is one of the nation's leading breast cancer research and education charities. It was founded in 1985 in memory of Lynn Sage, a Chicago-area woman who endured a six-year struggle with breast cancer with her spirit and dignity intact before she died at the age of 39.
Following Lynn's death, a group of 17 friends formed the Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation with a vow to cure this devastating disease. Today, 90 individuals serve on three boards in her memory with the common goal of making a difference in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.
Since its inception, LSCRF has raised over $22 million for breast cancer research including $15 million for Northwestern. Our administrative costs are less than 7%, so that there are more funds available for the research and education projects that we support. With each dollar donated, Lynn Sage's fight to cure breast cancer continues.
