Please join us on November 1st for the fourth annual Discovery Luncheon to support world-class research and enhancements to patient care at the BC Cancer Agency in Abbotsford. Funds raised at the 2016 Discovery Luncheon will support the acquisition of a critical piece of equipment that will benefit lung cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy at the Abbotsford Cancer Centre. Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women. This leading-edge equipment will provide better patient outcomes and create clinical efficiencies for patients.

Over the last three years over $115,000 has been raised at the Discovery Luncheon for ground-breaking cancer research and enhancements to patient care at the BC Cancer Agency Abbotsford Centre.

Your generosity has enabled advancements in clinical trials in Abbotsford and has also supported the brachytherapy program, which uses tiny radioactive ‘seeds’ to apply radiation directly to cancer tumours, maximizing the effectiveness of radiation treatment, while minimizing damage to adjacent tissues and structures. Abbotsford Cancer Centre is one of the most advanced and active brachytherapy sites in Canada. Last year’s luncheon supported the BC Cancer Agency’s world-leading Personalized Onco-Genomics (POG) program.
