“He did not tend to his multitude of friends for praise. It was his calling in life. He nurtured everyone he touched-in sickness, health, celebration, and in death, he was always there.”
Cissi wrote this about her hero, her father, Jim Henry Lynch, upon his death in 1999. The exact same words apply to how Cissi lived her own life; the apple surely did not fall far from the family tree.
We will continue to fulfill Cissi’s calling in life through our service to others and dedication to supporting organizations working to end cancer.
The Cissi Scott Foundation is led by devoted volunteers who are passionate about continuing Cissi’s legacy of service to others.

The Cissi Scott Foundation was founded in early 2020 to honor the courage, fight and legacy of Cissi Scott. Cissi has inspired countless friends and cheered on fellow cancer survivors in her 27 year battle against cancer.
In February 2020, the Cissi Scott Foundation presented $50,000 to the Jacob Green Foundation. The foundation supports the work of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Jacob Green is a former Texas A&M and Seattle Seahawks star football player who has raised millions of dollars for the Hutchinson Center.
