Oct. 26, 2012 - PRLog -- (CHICAGO) – The Barbara Bates Foundation (, in conjunction with the Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation, is hosting an event “Knocking Out Breast Cancer” on Sunday, October 28th beginning at 4:00 p.m. at the Prentice Women’s Hospital.  Proceeds from the Fall 2012 Fundraiser/Fashion Show will benefit the Robert H.

Barbara Bates is herself a breast cancer survivor.  Bates is the first person to tackle an event of this kind that supports cancer research specifically targeted to women of color in the Chicagoland area.  “Through my experiences I learned that breast cancer does not have a “type”, said Bates.  “It can strike anyone despite their race, age, size or even family history and I wanted to use my unique talents and gifts to help others learn about this disease and perhaps help save their lives.”
