Research Visit

IMG_0050An interesting visit with Frances Fullerpace and her team at Ninewell’s yesterday where we were updated in presentation format with the latest research information. Then a  visit to the laboratory and the Breast MRI scanner area, where we were shown some Xray’s of Breast Tumours and Breast cancer specimens.

Concerned that the funding will cease in August 2018 which is concerning. Apparently it would cost £160,000 to retain scientist Selene for a further three year period.

Some exciting news from our meeting on Monday 23rd October.

One of our lovely ladies, Esther has offered to make pockets for bras or swimsuits for ladies who find it challenging to buy these items. If you would be interested in trying this or would like anymore information please email the website, Margaret or myself and we will pass your details onto Esther.

September Meeting

We had a very informative meeting on Monday past from Karen from Maggie’s giving us an update on courses services available. Followed by a discussion with Lesley Forsythe and Avril Gunning regarding the Breast Care service in Tayside and Perth . The service is manned 4 days a week in Perth and there is a phone number available where your call should be returned within 24 hours. Calls are categorised by the type of call  If the call is not returned within this time period Avril Gunning would like to be informed. They have offered us support within our group as often as we feel is beneficial. There are cards available with the phone numbers on and these will be sent to Sylvia as soon as possible.
