Hello Friends. 

So much is going on at BTC that we simply can't contain it anymore: the inception meeting of our Board, a Heritage Canada Grant, improvements to the website, and much more. Read on!

Importantly, and as you know, we've been focused on improving our 
comprehensive and patient-driven breast cancer information tool that allows patients to better navigate the labyrinth of medical terms and treatment pathways that accompany a diagnosis of breast cancer. We're now ready to test the next version of the tool.

The test day is set for April 30th. We really need your help to make this a success. Please join us on April 30!


xoxo,
The BTC team

WEBSITE MAKEOVER
This summer and fall, the website was thoroughly edited and our medical advisory board reviewed the content to ensure that the latest treatment information was included. We are currently having the portion related to preserving fertility reviewed by an outside organization that deals specifically with fertility options.
GOING BILINGUAL!
Be the Choice is honoured to receive a 2017-18 Enhancement of Official Languages and Promotion of Linguistic Duality grant from the Ministry of Heritage. This grant will enable us to translate all of our existing digital resources into French. We  will be assessing how our bilingual tools can be useful to Francophone communities everywhere.
COMMUNITY SUPPORT
Meatings Barbeque Restaurant at 1790 Dunning Road in Ottawa was the place to be on Dec 31st, 2016.  A warm thank you to owners Joey and Matt Flosse for their support of cancer patients everywhere.
OFFICIALLY A NON-PROFIT!
BTC successfully concluded its inaugural board meeting with three inception Board members: Felicitas Adrian, Ronen Avram and Carolyn Nessim. The Board ratified and adopted the official bylaw of BTC as a non-profit corporation, and set its first Annual Meeting for June 8, in Ottawa.
CELEBRATE: CHOICE
JOIN US AS WE LAUNCH THE DECISION TREE
 
While the beta version of the Decision Tree is already available online, the final version will be introduced at our launch event on June 8, 2017. We would love for you to celebrate this important milestone with us. Join the BTC team on June 8 at Sidedoor Restaurant, 18 York Street in the Byward Market, Ottawa, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM, for food, wine, exciting speakers, and more!
