Dress for the Cause



Why1 in 8 Canadian women is expected to develop breast cancer during her lifetime 

This year an estimated 26, 300 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Approximately 14 Canadian women die of breast cancer every day

Of all estimated new cancers in women, breast cancer cases make up an estimated 25%

For every 4 men diagnosed with breast cancer 1 will die

HowThe Breast Cancer Society of Canada was created by a passionate family searching for a cure for their daughter Pam.  Over 25 years later, Pam continues to be our inspiration.  Because of this inspiration the Breast Cancer Society created Dress for the Cause, an annual event, held to celebrate breast cancer awareness month.  Dress for the Cause and the Breast Cancer Society of Canada raise money for the research into the detection, prevention, treatment and cure of breast cancer.

A clinical trial has been started by Dr. Francisco Perera and Dr. Eva Turley to learn if a cream can reduce skin damage when breast cancer patients receive radiation treatment. 
Drs. Alan Tuck and Ann Chambers along with Connor MacMillan are studying what regulates early breast cancer progression.  Identifying which early tumors are at high risk for progression may help in the development of treatments.
