Breast Cancer Canada
For the last three decades, you’ve known us as the Breast Cancer Society of Canada. But a disease that feels so ugly, with patients who often feel the same, needs a powerful reminder of the beauty of our actions, the beauty of the increasingly progressive research we fund. So, we have also evolved with a new name and look, into Breast Cancer Canada. What hasn’t changed, is our laser-focused commitment to directly funding breast cancer research
All of the money you raise supports patient-focused research for diagnosis and treatment. We provide funding for researchers in cancer centres, in universities, in laboratories across the country. Funding for those tireless champions who share our vision of delivering life-changing treatment and putting an end to breast cancer.
Not only are there more than 50 types of breast cancer, but every breast cancer patient is affected differently. So, our focus is on translational research – working closely with physicians to develop personalized medicines. This ‘precision oncology’ allows patients to receive ever more accurate diagnosis, and develop a personalized management plan. The result is treatment that is as personalized as the journey itself.
BCC doesn’t receive a single cent of government funding – our research is made entirely possible through the generosity of our donors. Our Charitable Registration Number is: 13796 9861 RR0001
