CANCER CARE AS UNIQUE AS YOU
CAN WE USE GENOMICS TO SHAPE TREATMENT FOR CANCER PATIENTS?
WITH YOUR HELP, BC CAN.
At BC Cancer, our objective is simple: to transform cancer care. We don’t want to just maintain the status quo; we’re looking to elevate our paradigm. Using the latest technology and led by some of the most brilliant scientific minds in the world, we have a bold vision for what cancer care could be.
In 2012, BC Cancer scientists launched a one-of-a-kind program to genetically sequence patients with hard to treat, incurable cancers. These patients had been through every available treatment option – chemotherapy, radiation, surgery. Nothing conventional had worked for them.
But through this program, promising new treatments for patients began to emerge.
In collaboration with other world-class cancer research institutions, BC Cancer will expand this revolutionary program to 100,000 patients so each remarkable recovery can be studied in depth to inform future treatment protocols that will benefit EVERYONE.
Fact: Cancer genomes are as unique as a fingerprint.
Fact: No two genomes are identical.
Therefore, cancer treatment can no longer be one-size-fits-all.
Cancer has affected too many lives, and taken too many of our loved ones. It isn’t enough to keep doing what we’ve been doing for the past three decades. As our knowledge of the disease changes, cancer care must change with it. Only by staying ahead of the curve can we break down cancer, one sequence at a time.
BC Cancer is looking toward the end game: transforming the standard of care in British Columbia with genetically-informed treatments for everyone. And with our links to population-based data going back decades and a team of world-class experts at the helm, BC Cancer is uniquely qualified to lead this transformative work.
This will be a global collaboration of huge proportions, stretching beyond provincial borders.
Cancer centres around the world will join us.
Together we will build the biggest archive of cancer information ever created, and the knowledge we gain from this will be truly life-changing.
