OUR 2019 CAUSE

Funds from this years’ tournament will support innovative research approach called radiogenomics, which focuses on obtaining as much information as possible about tumours through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), digital pathology and genetic mapping. Using these advanced techniques, Sunnybrook oncologists, radiation therapists and scientists work together to determine exactly how a particular breast tumour behaves and what treatment is best to eradicate it. Ultimately, this work would allow for a better patient experience through personalized approach to treatment with less side effects and probability of reoccurrence, and could one day be applied to virtually any form of cancer. With your investment, we will be able to set-up radiogenomics facility including the purchase of the digital pathology system, secure server and bio banking freezer.
