Scientists obtain real-time look at how cancers evolve
This year, approximately 4,060 British Columbians will be diagnosed with breast cancer. While many forms of breast cancer can be treated successfully, triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) remains the most deadly subtype because it is resistant to most forms of treatment.
BC Cancer Foundation is the fundraising partner of BC Cancer, which includes BC Cancer Research. Together with our donors, we are changing cancer outcomes for British Columbians by funding innovative research and personalized treatment and care.
