The Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Foundation (HBOC) is hard at work preparing for our Seventh International Symposium on Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancerto be held May 8-11, 2018. This unique event which attracts over 500 leading scientists, researchers and clinicians from around the world has grown to be one of the most important gatherings of hereditary cancer specialists in the world. The symposium also includes a day for the general public. This day provides carriers and their families with relevant information to help better understand and cope with BRCA. (brcasymposium.ca)

In 2018, HBOC has decided to focus our efforts singularly on the symposium. In order to support the symposium and the clinical coordination we provide in the hospitals, we are, once again, counting on your contribution to our "Genes Campaign". In short order, HBOC will formally announce that it is collaborating to establish a Center for Inherited Susceptibility to Cancerthat will create an environment for cutting edge projects and research.  Different sponsorship levels are listed on the enclosed donation form.  Donations received as part of this fundraising campaign will be recognized at the symposium.
HBOC has raised over $2 Million to date and it is critical that we maintain our services to the community.
Please feel free to contact us by email with any questions you may have at info@hboc.ca.  Payments can be made using the enclosed form, or online at hboc.ca.
Stay tuned for more news from HBOC!
Your support changes more than one life, it impacts an entire community.

Our Logo

Our corporate brand is composed of the pink breast cancer ribbon, and the teal ovarian cancer ribbon fashioned into a double helix, which is the structure of DNA- the building block of the genetic blueprint.
