Help Breast Cancer Patients Thrive
Breast cancer dominates too many lives
Thanks to better screening and therapies, breast cancer isn’t the force it once was. Far fewer Canadian women die of the disease than they did 20 years ago. But it’s not enough: 5,000 Canadian women will succumb to this terrible disease this year alone.
Money raised to date
We are revolutionizing breast cancer treatment and care. Let’s help breast cancer patients thrive.
Breast cancer takes too many lives every year.
Our expert physicians and researchers are providing whole-person care and ushering in scientific breakthroughs that will save more lives.
When cancer spreads, it becomes more deadly than ever. MUHC cancer researchers Dr. Peter Metrakos and Dr. Anthoula Lazaris are pioneering new treatments for metastatic breast cancer to help more women survive.
Women with the BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations have a much higher risk of breast cancer, and at an earlier age. MUHC researcher Dr. Patricia Tonin is studying these genetic differences to ensure fewer women lose their lives to breast cancer.
For too many women, remission isn’t the victory it should be. After the stress and anguish of diagnosis, treatments, side-effects and surgery, they are physically and emotionally depleted. The MUHC Breast Clinic Wellness Program provides personalized support throughout the cancer journey to help women thrive.
“We have become very good at the treatment part — so good that almost nine out of ten patients survive breast cancer. But these women have names, lives, families. They’re individuals. We must not only cure them so they will live. We must support them so they can once again thrive.”
