The twofold sessions are designed to encourage discussions about BRCA1 & BRCA2, and to focus on the quality of life for breast cancer patients. The speakers come from various corners of the world and this event promises the delivery of a dynamic conference of speakers, discussions and debate.

We would like to thank the faculty who participated throughout the year and provided valuable advice about lecturers and the agenda. We would also like to thank the sponsors who provided financial support for the meeting. And we would sincerely like to thank all of the attendees.

KastaĆ° til bata (e. Casting for Recovery)

Casting for Recovery is a unique rehabilitation program that has been run in Iceland for several years now. The mission of Casting for recovery is to give women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer the opportunity to enhance their quality of life by practising fly fishing in beautiful nature. This is an opportunity to experience a new activity in a safe environment amongst a supportive group of peers and catch some fish, if you are lucky!
