Discovery 2020

Discovery 2020

On Friday, November 27, 2020, the BC Cancer Foundation invites you to attend our re-imagined 10th Annual Discovery Luncheon: Discovery 2020 presented by BMO and Sentes Automotive – a unique virtual event that will rally the community together to break down women’s cancers!

In 2020, The BC Cancer Foundation committed to change the outcome for the over 5,500 British Columbians who will be diagnosed with a women’s cancer this year - including 3,975 women who will face breast cancer.

We know we can because we already are.

  • With donor support, BC Cancer was the first to sequence the DNA of breast cancer, leading to a new understanding of the disease and how to treat it.
  • BC Cancer researchers were the first to discover and implement a novel method to prevent ovarian cancer. This method has since been adopted by cancer centres around the world.

We are on the cusp of more cures - join us for Discovery 2020 presented by BMO and Sentes Automotive and help us change the story for more women across the province!

DONATE   REGISTER

Upon registration, attendance is free-of-charge, but we encourage our supporters to pledge a gift in lieu of a ticket, to support breakthrough research and innovations in care that will honour every community member who has faced a women's cancer.

How Your Gift Helps

BC Cancer is world-leading in its research and treatment – thanks to donors like you.

Since 2017, all newly-diagnosed BC Cancer breast cancer patients have been invited to participate in a comprehensive study to understand the evolution of their cancer over time. This initiative, called B-PRECISE, collects tumour tissue and blood from every breast cancer at the time of diagnosis.

Led by BC Cancer Distinguished Scientist Dr. Samuel Aparicio, Medical Oncologist Dr. Stephen Chia and Medical Oncologist Dr. Karen Gelmon, B-PRECISE will result in a massive shift in treatment and care strategies for all breast cancer patients in British Columbia.

You can help advance this breakthrough research.

Donate to Discovery 2020 presented by BMO and Sentes Automotive and then join us for the event.
