Anti-cancer group the Lynne Cohen Foundation serves women facing breast and ovarian cancers on a national scale, and has done so for 16 years. Now, their new website delivers information, hope, and a sense of community to families across the nation to broaden awareness and extend impact for families facing increased risk of women’s cancers.
The launch of the new website coincides with the foundation’s #sockittocancer crowdfunding campaign which features dollar-for-dollar matching up to $75,000 and a partnership with Pointe Studio Socks. The initial goal of raising $60,000 is 86% of the way funded. The campaign will fund multidisciplinary preventive care clinics at University of Southern California, University of Alabama, Birmingham, and New York University.
Ovarian and breast cancers are correlated and genetically linked, and women facing risk and/or diagnosis too often find themselves without the necessary tools to prevent future disease. Ali Oshinsky faced breast cancer in her early thirties, and credits the Lynne Cohen Preventive Clinic in Los Angeles with saving her life. Her multidisciplinary team at the clinic successfully treated her breast cancer, but also designed and implemented a prevention strategy to address her risk for ovarian cancer. She now breathes easy with her husband and three children at their home in California, knowing that her risk is almost completely reduced, and that she has a lifelong, multidisciplinary, and compassionate medical team on her side.
Bringing physicians with diverse specialties together within their preventive care clinics, the Lynne Cohen Foundation emphasizes the importance of risk assessment, prevention, and personalized medical care, guidance, and attention.
Lynne Cohen Foundation is a leading non-profit fighting women’s cancers through prevention and education.
