We write with exciting news. Thanks to the grant from the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) as well as your generous donations at our May 4th fundraiser, we are well on our way to changing the way breast cancer patients make decisions around treatment options. 

We have been very busy this summer. We hired a Project Coordinator and brought a few more volunteer experts on board. Please read about these lovely people below.

The big news is that on October 13th we are  soft-launching the Decision Tree - our innovative approach to navigating choices around breast cancer care. This means that we're making the Tree publicly available. While we haven't made all of the changes we have planned, we know that cancer patients need this information now, not tomorrow. We hope that with access to this information, we will also be able to harness their feedback to guide future improvements to the Tree.

As always, be in touch with us with any ideas or recommendations (especially for anyone wishing to donate!)
