Can you help us save more lives?

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

OC­TO­BER is Breast Can­cer Aware­ness Month and Scan­nap­peal is cur­rently fundrais­ing for ad­vanced equip­ment to rad­i­cally im­prove di­ag­no­sis of early breast can­cer.

Res­i­dents liv­ing in the county are al­ready ben­e­fit­ing from the new ad­vanced dig­i­tal equip­ment Scan­nap­peal has funded for the mo­bile breast screen­ing unit and at Wy­combe Hos­pi­tal.

I am prin­ci­pal pa­tron of this mar­vel­lous lo­cal char­ity, which has pro­vided so much life-sav­ing equip­ment which would not nor­mally be funded by the NHS.

I hope you will con­sider help­ing us raise £200,000 for the fi­nal stage of this ap­peal to add cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy with 3D imag­ing.

The depth of th­ese ex­cep­tion­ally sharp images will as­sist clin­i­cians in vi­su­al­is­ing ab­nor­mal­i­ties and po­ten­tial tu­mours and has been proven to in­crease can­cer de­tec­tion rates by 40 per cent.

Your support would mean that each year more than 20,000 lo­cal women will ben­e­fit from this equip­ment and will save lives.
