What We Do
The Lynne Cohen Foundation serves women facing increased risk for ovarian and breast cancers. With education programs and comprehensive preventive care clinics, we arm these women and their families with the knowledge, tools, and clinical support they need to take action early, survive, and thrive.
Our Preventive Care Clinics house multi-disciplinary teams of doctors and specialists dedicated to assessing your risk, implementing a management plan, and supporting you along the way.
Educational opportunities range from the clinic to the living room, and arm you with the knowledge, tools and insights needed to feel aware, safe, and supported.
At Kickin’ Cancer!® Events, it’s all about getting sweaty for the cause, making new friends, and celebrating life.
Where Do You Locate Yourself in this Cause?
Our donors realize that not only are we fighting for our sisters, mothers, daughters and friends, but for ourselves.
Make an Impact
We need your support to sustain and extend the borders of this impact. Transforming your gifts into lives saved is our own life’s work.
Founded in 1998 by the daughters and son of Lynne Cohen, the Lynne Cohen Foundation exemplifies the life force and passion of its namesake. Lynne loved being a mom. From playing with her kids, to encouraging their life explorations, Lynne served as her children’s guiding light and inspiration. She endowed each of them with a profound sense of responsibility and compassion.
Lynne battled for 5 long years to stay with her children, but ultimately succumbed to ovarian cancer. Determined to honor their mother’s memory, Lynne’s children founded the Lynne Cohen Foundation to fight for women like their mother and families like their own. At just 21 years old, Lynne’s youngest daughter, Amy, became the driving force behind the project. Seventeen years later, she remains dedicated to delivering the foundation’s gifts to those who need them most.
“I always strived to be a best friend, no matter how great or how crummy my day was. When I look back, what matters most is that I was there for the people I loved.”
-Lynne Cohen (1945-1998)
