2019 Hope Couture A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESENTING SPONSOR, LEGACY SENIOR LIVING - THE LEO WERTMAN RESIDENCE Legacy Senior Living – The Leo Wertman Residence has great pleasure in welcoming you to the BC Cancer Foundation’s 2019 Hope Couture luncheon and fashion show. We are delighted to be a continuing partner in supporting the Foundation’s goal to raise funds for the creation of a Pancreatic Cancer Rapid Access Clinic at BC Cancer. For the over 800 British Columbians that will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year, time is precious. Every day BC Cancer’s team of experts races against the clock to confirm patient diagnoses and decide on the best course of treatment; but for most people it’s not happening fast enough. BC Cancer’s vision is to create a rapid access clinic where specialist consults are consolidated into a single visit, testing is expedited, genetic profiling is performed at the time of diagnosis and new, more effective treatment options are explored. It will also inform pancreatic cancer research, helping to pave the way for future cutting-edge breakthroughs. Together, with your generous support, we can bring new HOPE to British Columbians affected by pancreatic cancer. Legacy Senior Living – The Leo Wertman Residence is honoured to be a part of this worthwhile fundraising cause.

Every day, BC Cancer’s team of experts races against the clock to confirm patient diagnoses and decide on the best course of treatment, but for most people it’s not happening fast enough. Patients often need to be seen by several specialists and there can be significant delays in arranging these appointments and subsequent tests. During this time, the cancer can progress. Our vision is to create a rapid access clinic at BC Cancer, where: • specialist consults are consolidated into a single visit on a single day; • testing is expedited; • cutting edge genetic profiling is performed at the time of diagnosis, leading to tailored therapies for each individual patient. • the clinical research team can discuss potential experimental treatment options Not only will this clinic significantly minimize stress for patients and families, it will dramatically reduce the time elapsed between diagnosis and the start of treatment. By relieving some of their greatest anxieties, we can help patients cope better. By managing their care more efficiently, we can help give them their best chance for survival. We invite you to join us in launching the Pancreatic Cancer Rapid Access Clinic at the 2019 Hope Couture.
