Our Vision: An End to Breast Cancer
Our Mission: To Save Lives through Breast Cancer Research
The Breast Cancer Society of Canada, (BCSC) is a registered, national non-profit charity dedicated to saving lives through breast cancer research. We raise money to fund patient-focused research for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of breast cancer.
The Breast Cancer Society of Canada was established in 1991 by Lawrence and Kay Greenaway, in memory of their daughter Pam who died of breast cancer at 38 years old. They positively transformed their deep loss into a mission to raise money to fund research to cure this devastating disease.“I think about Pam all the time, but it was almost as devastating to find out there were thousands of daughters besides my own with breast cancer.” - Lawrence GreenawayHow you support Canadian breast cancer patients
The money you raise for the Breast Cancer Society of Canada provides funding for our dedicated researchers and physicians in cancer centres, universities and laboratories across the country who share our vision of an end to breast cancer and work every day supporting our mission to save lives through breast cancer research.
Every breast cancer patient is different and through research we have learned a one-size fits all approach to treatment doesn’t work for everyone. That’s why we have a 5-year plan to develop and implement personalized medicine for breast cancer patients – an extraordinary advancement!
In our first year, we will provide patients with access to broader, more accurate diagnostic testing which is not routinely available in Canada today.
Our researchers conduct translational, or ‘bench to bedside’ research - working closely with physicians to deliver new treatments and improving patient outcomes. Through our Virtual Lab Network, research findings are shared among colleagues across Canada to advance a cure for breast cancer.Connect with us on social!
