GCRC inspiring hope

As part of its mission to empower patients, caregivers and families dealing with cancer, the Goodman Cancer Research Centre organizes an annual series of four lectures at which leading experts discuss advances in cancer research.

The program presents relevant topics such as the latest groundbreaking research, complex cancer diseases, and novel treatments and best practices in patient care management.  Each session includes an inspirational testimonial from a patient, who shares his or her personal journey, from facing the challenges of diagnosis to surviving well beyond cancer. At the conclusion of the lecture, attendees can ask questions to members of an expert panel.
