A provincial entity with national and international reach, we remain the only organization in Canada with the mission to represent, educate and support individuals, families and communities affected by RISKY GENES
Certain inherited gene mutations greatly increase the risk of developing certain types of cancer, often at a young age. Hereditary breast, ovarian and related types of hereditary cancer such prostate are far more prevalent and dangerous than most people think, but there is hope in the form of early-age screening, cancer risk reduction options and specialized cancer treatments.
Our vision is that all persons affected directly or indirectly by risky genes have timely access to quality health information and services. The Society is governed by a Board of Directors and supported by an Advisory Council of professionals.
