This morning it was my pleasure to represent our government at the announcement of the partnership between Genome BC and the BC Cancer Agency. Both organizations are focused on the potential of genomics to improve patient outcomes. Genome BC is funding three applied genomic research projects totalling 9 million so that the clinical tools we have are better able to treat each patients's individual cancer. This is good news for patients and their families. Special guest included Sindi Hawkin's sister Rupie and Sindi's Dad. Rupie spoke beautifully of her sisters' contribution to cancer care in our province. I will be there when the Cancer Care Center for the Southern Interior carries the name Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins.
