Breast Cancer Awareness
In 2021 so far, breast cancer has totaled 14.8% of all cancer diagnoses made, according to the National Cancer Center. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a crucial time of year, as each dollar donated and every piece of research subsequently conducted is key to finding a cure. This is furthered in October especially, but year-round by organizations like Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Foundation.
What Is Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Foundation?
Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Foundation (LSBCF) was established by the family of Lynn Sage in her honor in 1985, and has raised over $40 million since its inception. Impressively and importantly, 94% of funds raised goes to research and education, two core pieces of the foundation’s mission.
With cancer in general, and breast cancer in particular, early detection is key, and would not be possible with education from institutions such as LSBCF. And, without research support, treatment options such as oral Tamoxifen, considered “the standard of care treatment” for hormone-receptor positive breast cancer, and of which Lynn Sage was a heavy early investor, would not be possible.
Lynn Sage’s care goes beyond just research and education, however. In 1991, the foundation partnered with Northwestern Memorial Hospital (NMH), resulting in the Lynn Sage Comprehensive Breast Center, “the largest of its kind in the Midwest,” and a recognized American College of Radiology Center of Excellence, defined as an institution that provides the highest quality imaging, safety and care to its patients. This is demonstrated, too, in their support of Northwestern University, where donations have led to the development of:
(1) fellowships for oncology
(2) funding projects in research and education at Northwestern Medicine, and
(3) the Breast Cancer Survivorship Program
This October, you can help LSBCF further their mission with Save to Give.
