The BC Cancer Foundation hosts the fourth annual Discovery Luncheon in Abbotsford on Tuesday, Nov. 1 at the Quality Hotel and Conference Centre (36035 North Parallel Rd.).

The event, which runs from noon to 1:15 p.m., is being held to support the acquisition of a critical piece of equipment that will benefit lung cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy at the BC Cancer Agency’s centre in Abbotsford.

This leading-edge equipment will provide better patient outcomes and create clinical efficiencies for patients, the foundation says.

BC Cancer Foundation president Sarah Roth will emcee the event. Speakers are medical oncologist Dr. Jenny Ko, radiation oncologist Dr. Fred Hsu and David Zacks, a member of the foundation’s board of directors who will speak about his personal connection to cancer.

Registration for the event begins at 11:30 a.m.
