About Us


The Hong Kong Hereditary Breast Cancer Family Registry ( ‘THE REGISTRY’) is the only and first-ever charitable organization. Established in 2007, THE REGISTRY is dedicated to helping the high-risk families who have hereditary risk of breast, ovarian and prostate cancer due to BRCA gene mutations. We also aim to advance and standardize clinical care by formulating preventative measures through data collection, research, public education, counseling and supportive care services in reducing the incidence of hereditary cancers in Chinese population. Currently, THE REGISTRY has the largest database and biobank of hereditary breast cancers specimens in Chinese which would facilitate better understanding of the disease locally and globally.


We have helped over 6,100 individuals (including more than 4,700 index patients) and over 1,200 mutation carriers have been identified. Some of them have been referred for breast surveillance or other support at THE REGISTRY designated high-risk breast clinic for better disease management.
