BREASTOBER is a fundraising and awareness initiative at The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation to support the Breast Cancer Program at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

Breast cancer affects women and it affects men – but it also affects our families, our friends and our colleagues – every life matters.

One in 9 women in Canada will learn they have breast cancer in their lifetime. One in 9 will be treated at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

The Breast Cancer Research Program at the Cancer Centre includes innovative and ground breaking research, the Gattuso Rapid Diagnostic Program, the Breast Reconstruction Program and the Survivorship Program. Additionally, we run nutritional seminars at our Ellicsr location.

Through early detection and intervention, women and men with breast cancer are living longer and healthier lives after diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.  Your support is meaningful and it is making a difference.  For more information on how to get involved, please visit www@breastober.ca and follow our social networks:
