ABOUT BREAST CANCER

Breast Cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian women. Last year, an estimated 23,800 Canadian women were diagnosed with breast cancer and 5,000 died from it. Many factors can improve a woman's risk of getting breast cancer, including sex, age and history. Breast cancer research, early detection and breast screening, have greatly increased the survival rate for this disease.

 

WHAT IS THE BREAST CANCER SOCIETY OF CANADA?

21 years ago Pamela Greenaway-Kohlmeier lost her battle with breast cancer. She was a daughter, a wife and a mother of two young children. Pamela's family and friends founded the Breast Cancer Society of Canada. From this beginning we have evolved into one of Canada's leading breast cancer research funding organizations.

Inspired by this families' search for a cure, the Breast Cancer Society of Canada's mission is to support patient focused research for diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Every dollar Canadians donate to research will make a difference. With dedication and donations, we will find a cure.
