Born in Hong Kong, Dr. Frances Wong immigrated to B.C. with her family when she was in high school. She was first introduced to oncology during a summer job at the BC Cancer Agency. She has been part of the Agency’s medical staff since the 1980s, treating patients with gynecological, breast and head & neck cancer. Dr. Wong is currently the Chief Physician at the BC Cancer Agency’s Abbotsford and Fraser Valley Centres. There, she and her colleagues have established the Breast Research to Evaluate Access and Services (BREAST) team in order to improve the care and treatment of patients across the province and take an in-depth look at the needs of cancer survivors.
