"A huge system failure needs a huge system change that includes input from breast cancer survivors” is the unanimous response of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Breast Cancer Network (CBCN) to Justice Margaret Cameron’s report released Tuesday in St. John’s.

CBCN President Diana Ermel says: ‘This is not a regional problem, it is a national one. The CBCN strongly supports the Cameron Report recommendation for not only provincial but national standards and would like to see actions and steps taken to implement systemic changes with uniform standards in Canada as a necessary step to begin to restore confidence in the medical system by women diagnosed with breast cancer and their families.”
