Breast cancer has come a long way since the Foundation began funding research, education and awareness initiatives 25 years ago. Today, breast cancer has become one of the leading health causes of our time.
However, there is still much work to be done. Breast cancer continues to be the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian women, with 1 in 9 estimated to be diagnosed in her lifetime.
That’s why education and awareness about breast health, being breast aware, reducing breast cancer risk and community outreach are vital.
