Over $3 million was raised at the 2019 Inspiration Gala on Saturday, November 2nd to advance genomics – the analysis of an individual’s DNA to better understand their cancer. Thousands of patients will benefit from this support, building on the vision of Dr. Don Rix - the first individual in the world to be treated based on their cancer’s DNA - right here at BC Cancer.

BC Cancer’s brilliant oncologists, bioinformaticians, pathologists and scientists are now one step closer to achieving their mission to break down cancer and change outcomes for the more than 27,000 British Columbians diagnosed with cancer each year. 

​Generous community support enables BC Cancer to lead transformative work with state-of-the art whole genome technology and robust clinical trials to test new genome-based treatments for widespread use.
