The season of giving is near and this November, Terrera is giving back to our community through our sales. From November 1-30th, 2021 we have committed to donating 10% of all proceeds from our sales to support breast cancer research through the Breast Cancer Society of Canada.
Every day, 14 Canadian women on average die from breast cancer. In a year, 5,100 women will die from breast cancer and 13% of all estimated female cancer deaths in 2020 were due to breast cancer. Currently across Canada, routine diagnostic testing focuses on known or existing breast cancer markers. Funding for broader and more accurate molecular testing is not currently available. With the support of donors, BCSC aims to operationalize research and deliver real, measurable results to patients across Canada.
More about their research:
“ Our research is improving the lives of breast cancer patients through the development of precision oncology treatments, and new diagnostic tests – like a simple blood test that will detect the presence of some types of breast cancers. The aim of precision oncology, also known as personalized medicine is to provide more targeted therapies for patients. Receiving an accurate diagnosis, avoiding unnecessary treatments such as chemotherapy and knowing how a patient will respond to their treatment before it begins offers new hope to patients and their families.
These are game-changing advancements – new tests for early detection and the development of more personalized treatments are making real differences for breast cancer patients and their families.” - Breast Cancer Society of Canada website: https://bcsc.ca/
For over 30 Years BCSC has proudly funded high-caliber research teams that are located near the patient’s treatment clinics.
