If you or someone you love has been touched by breast cancer, you’ve come to the right place. We’re here to support anyone affected by breast cancer. Most of our programs and services are free and you don’t need to be a member to sign up.

We care because we’ve been there. Our founders walked in the shoes of the newly diagnosed and keenly understood the stress and the difficulty in learning to cope.

Whatever you’re going through right now, we’re here to help.

 The 2014 Annual general Meeting will be held on Wednesday, Novemeber 19th, 2014. The session is scheduled from 6 to 8pm at 900 Dynes Rd, Ottawa.

We do hope that you will be able to join us! Any questions, please call 613-736-5921 or email info@bcaott.ca
