At present we are fundraising to bring a new piece of kit to the area, it’s called Ultrasound-MRI Fusion for Targeted Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer and we hope to successfully purchase this soon due to the amazing support we have had. We are also keen to raise awareness of this most common cancer in men and Pollard really has helped us with that, so thank you so very much from us all”.
