HeritX is the only organization focused solely on preventing inherited cancer.

Fact: 1 in 3 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, and the numbers are rising. Only prevention can stop this.

HeritX is changing the approach to cancer by putting prevention first. Prevention is the only way to spare our loved ones the trauma of cancer and its treatment.

Fact: Despite decades of research, cancer treatment is still agonizing and it takes an average of 15 years to develop new medicines.

Families threatened by inherited BRCA cancer urgently need a preventive therapy. HeritX has designed an accelerated roadmap to achieve a safe prevention in less than 10 years.

Inherited BRCA cancer prevention will be the gateway to all cancer prevention.

You can enable transformative progress and make cancer prevention a reality.
