The launch coincides with LCF’s innovative #sockittocancer crowdfunder, featuring dollar-for-dollar matching up to 75K, a partnership with Pointe Studio Socks, and a 0% waste promise.

Lynne Cohen Foundation serves women facing breast and ovarian cancers on a national scale, and has done so for 16 years. Now, their website (http://lynnecohenfoundation.org) delivers information, hope, and a sense of community to families across the nation and around the globe through best practice interactive media design.

Informed by best practice websites from across industries and sectors, the Lynne Cohen Foundation’s new site broadens awareness and extends impact for families facing increased risk of women’s cancers.

The launch of the new website coincides with the foundation's innovative #sockittocancer crowdfunder (http://bit.ly/1ip9QCD), which features dollar-for-dollar matching up to $75,000, a partnership with Pointe Studio Socks, and a 0% waste promise. The campaign funds 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. This message is amplified across the nation and globe via its newly enhanced web presence. Check it out: http://lynnecohenfoundation.org.

Lynne Cohen Foundation is a leading non-profit fighting women’s cancers through prevention and education. Its website is breaking down barriers to knowledge and spreading the message of hope for women like Ali everywhere. Its fundraising methods simultaneously rally millenials to get involved. Take a look.
