President & CEO, BC Cancer Foundation

Today is World Cancer Day and many of us are taking time to honour, remember and recognize those who have been affected by this devastating disease. Here in B.C., we are fortunate to have some of the world’s best cancer experts working to solve the molecular mysteries of the disease. With these excellent leaders at the helm, I am confident we will achieve our vision of a world free from cancer.

I want to thank Dr. Brian Toyota for sharing unforgettable stories of the strength and bravery of brain cancer patients and their families throughout the month of January.

We are very pleased to welcome Dr. Hagen Kennecke to the blog for February. Dr. Kennecke is the Professional Practice Leader for Medical Oncology at the BC Cancer Agency and an expert in gastrointestinal cancers. I hope you will join me in reading his blog posts this month.
