The Breast Cancer Society of Canada (BCSC) is a non-profit organization that was established in 1991 to help fund medical research into the detection, prevention, treatment, and cure of breast cancer. The Society is committed to developing chapters and volunteer bases throughout Canada in an unified effort to promote public awareness of breast cancer and to raise funds to make breast cancer research a top priority of Canadian medical research. The Society's mandate includes funding research into non-surgical (non-invasive) detection methods; the potential links between breast cancer and certain environmental factors (e.g., high fat factors); the potential role of genetics; and improved treatments including new, compatible chemotherapeutic agents, improved radiation treatment methods, and new methods of hormone therapy. The Society's ultimate goal is to eliminate the threat of breast cancer. It works to fulfill its goal by supporting continuing research in such areas as genetic investigations at the molecular level. The Breast Cancer Society of Canada has a web site on the Internet that discusses its mission, objectives, and goals; provides breast cancer facts; and offers organizational activity updates.
