<br /> PROGRESS REPORT<br /> JANUARY 1 – DECEMBER 31, 2016<br /> WE TAKE CANCER PERSONALLY.<br /> Our mission is to see a world free of the devastating effects<br /> of BRCA-related cancers.<br /> The Basser Center for BRCA at Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center<br /> provides families with a place they can turn to for education, genetic counseling,<br /> and treatment. We raise awareness around the world. We are at the center of<br /> a global hub of scientists, geneticists, and physicians dedicated to successfully<br /> treating BRCA-related cancers, and eventually preventing them altogether.<br /> “I started my career focusing on<br /> how to find better options for people<br /> faced with a BRCA mutation. We have<br /> z<br /> come a long way, and I know that by the<br /> end of my career, the Basser Center<br /> will play a significant role in offering a<br /> greater array of higher quality choices.”<br /> SUSAN DOMCHEK, MD<br /> Basser Pro<a title="2017 Basser Progress Report page 1" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/65760b62?page=1"> PROGRESS REPORT JANUARY 1 – DECEMBER 31, 2016</a> <a title="2017 Basser Progress Report page 2" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/65760b62?page=2"> WE TAKE CANCER PERSONALLY.
