Of the more than 1 million Canadians estimated to carry RISKY GENES up to 80% are still unaware.

Nothing can make your own journey seem less daunting than by helping others. There are so many ways to get involved but one of the most important is to support the RISKY GENES AWARENESS PROGRAM.  We believe this to be the only program of its kind, with the primary purpose of actively seeking out persons who do not yet know they are affected, to ensure they have

the opportunity to make informed health decisions that could save their lives.

ATTEND an event

A great way to get connected is to give back through volunteering.  There are so many ways to help and we can always use a helping hand!  Another great way is to attend one of our events

The road can be a long one for a risky gene carrier.  If you are thinking about genetic testing, at the end of your prevention or cancer journey, or anywhere in between we can connect you with someone who has been there.

There is so much to know when one is a risky gene carrier and so many questions.  We are happy to help in any way we are able including putting you in touch with other helpful resources.
