My Breast Cancer Compass is here to guide patients, caregivers, friends and family members as they navigate the breast cancer journey.

This website was developed by a Steering Committee of health care professionals and patient organizations, with financial support from Hoffmann-La Roche Limited, to help inform, empower and provide support for patients with breast cancer and their caregivers.  

Members of the Steering Committee:

  • Dr. Karen Gelmon, Professor of Medicine at the University of British Columbia and Medical Oncologist at British Columbia Cancer Agency (BCCA), Chair of Steering Committee

  • Cathy Ammendolea, Chair of the Board of Directors for the Canadian Breast Cancer Network (CBCN)

  • Dr. Nadia Califaretti, Medical Oncologist at Grand River Regional Cancer Centre

  • Flay Charbonneau, Pharmacy Manager at Odette Cancer Centre at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre
