In November 2014 HMCRT made a £500 Contribution toward Breast Imaging Equipment at the Royal Victoria Infirmary , Newcastle. This was the result of an appeal from Mary McElroy, mother of the legendary Sammy who has done so much for HMCRT.
In 2013 they were raising funds to enable them to perform MRI guided breast biopsies which they now do. As a result Newcastle has become the established centre in the North as the next unit is in Leeds. They set off hoping to raise £5000 but due to the tremendous support they received they managed to raise £35,000.
HMCRT has just sent a further £250 to help them raise more funds. This time they are looking to purchase some equipment to enable them to perform 3D image guided breast biopsies.
