Attend the 10th annual conference because hereditary cancer knowledge can be life-saving. It's an international conference designed by and for people and families affected by hereditary cancer, and will present the latest research on these cancers and a wide range of topics about making medical decisions, quality-of-life and long-term health outcomes.
Attendees include people concerned about hereditary cancer: survivors, previvors, people with a mutation or family history of cancer, patient advocates, researchers, and health care providers who treat high-risk patients.
You will have the opportunity to enroll in research, meet experts, share experiences and network with others who have first-hand understanding of all you are going through. We hope you'll join us!
