Welcome to Familial Cancer Foundation of WNY
Our mission is to identify and provide reliable information and support to those individuals at high risk for familial cancers, so that they may make informed decisions for themselves and their families.
The goals of our foundation are:
- To advocate for accessible and affordable testing and screening for those at high risk for a genetic cancer mutation.
- To make providers and high risk families aware of available genetic mutation testing and its role in decreasing the stage at diagnosis or overall risk of developing associated cancers.
- To facilitate informed decision-making for those with a genetic cancer mutation by linking them with competent counselors, providers, and mentors.
