By , there had already been sufficient progress in medical technology platforms that breast cancer diagnostic imaging, biopsies and patient management no longer required an often daunting in-hospital setting. At that same time, three dozen recently treated breast cancer patients were invited by the then newly-launched Ville Marie Oncology Foundation VMOF Board to a brainstorming session, along with a dozen invited breast cancer experts to explore how the VMOF could help optimize breast cancer management within the new and encouraging concept of ambulatory care. The goal of this meeting was to help define the Mission of the VMOF which was not mandated, like most hospital-based Foundations, to raise funds to cover specific hospital-based costs, but was seeking to specifically support out-of-hospital, community-based, ambulatory breast cancer care. Nearly all of these committed and visionary patients had had to face the overwhelming anxiety associated with the frequent hospital-based delays in accessing the multi-disciplinary expertise required to complete their management, and to initiate appropriate post treatment support that could have facilitated their road to recovery.
