Weʼve raised £330 to purchase radio frequency seed equipment to help locate tiny breast tumours/lesions for Cumbria Breast Services.
- Carlisle, Cumbria
- Funded on Tuesday, 31st March 2020
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The advantage of this technique is that there is no need to place the localisation mark on the day of surgery. Conventional wires however, need to be placed AND removed on the day of surgery. The wire end comes through the breast skin and can cause discomfort; furthermore if it is pushed/pulled, it can become misplaced. To avoid these problems surgery must take place soon after insertion, then removed again afterwards. A Radiologist is needed for each procedure, which can be difficult to organise. The 'seed' can be inserted/removed weeks or months before surgery, so lessening the stress incurred on that day.
