The Lynn Sage Foundation

The Lynn Sage Foundation was founded in 2003 by the family of Lynn Sage in honor and memory of their beloved wife, mother, sister, daughter and friend, who tragically passed away at the age of 39 as a result of her battle with breast cancer. Dedicated to finding a cure for this disease, the Foundation has raised over $1,500,000 to support The Lynn Sage Scholars Program, which is 100% local to Chicago and 100% research-based. The Lynn Sage Scholars Program awards $100,000 per year, for two years, to some of the country’s most promising researchers at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University. The Cancer Center, under the direction of Dr. Leonidas Platanias, is a nationally recognized leader in breast cancer care, education, and research, and is one of only two established Comprehensive Cancer Centers in Illinois.
