My first exposure to BCAN was an invitation to the TT in 2015. This meeting changed my life. I have never seen an organization like BCAN. On one hand, BCAN has stayed true to its primary mission to help patients on their journey with bladder cancer. Yet, I know of no other organization that has cultivated the scientific development of young investigators and nurtured their careers like BCAN.” – Dr. Meeks
