Gift of Discovery
"A test developed by a Canadian Cancer Society-funded researcher detected a genetic mutation which increased my risk of stomach cancer by 70 per cent. While this discovery came too late to save my mother and sister, now as a father myself, I take comfort in knowing the test could protect my son.”
Tyler Cook, cancer survivor
