Breast Cancer Kent relies solely on donations from the great British public for its work. Every donation and legacy, small or large, is gratefully received and put to good use. The charity is run by Trustees and volunteers who give of their time completely free of charge so that all money raised for the charity goes to the charity – helping to improve the well being of those with a breast cancer diagnosis in Kent.
Over the last few years over half a million pounds has been raised. Some funds go to small projects such as pilates classes, alternative therapy sessions and social support groups. Here is a list of some of the larger equipment purchases the charity has made to help the breast cancer units:
A rapid tissue processor – £55,000
Radiotherapy DVSs – £11,950
Mammatone machine – £20,000
Faxitron machine – £52,799
Ultrasound system – £23,224
Mammatome Elite System – £12,222
Ultrasound system 2 – £73,743
Tomosynthesis machine – £144,000
Breath-hold radiotherapy equipment – £9,417
Microbiological safety cabinet – £7,050
Faxitron 2 – £98,500
Still more funding is needed for ever developing technologies, more complex answers to treatment, support groups for younger breast cancer patients and support groups for those with a secondary breast cancer diagnosis.
