Thanks to the outstanding support shown during our Fundraiser last May 2023, and the very giving nature of our donors, we were able to purchase new 3D DynaCad Breast Imaging Software for the James Paton Memorial Regional Health Centre in Gander.

Our goal was to raise $125,000 to help with this purchase ! Our Foundation believes that these investments will directly and positively impact patients as well as their family members for years to come and we hope you will agree. Join us on Thursday May 9th 2024 for the 32nd Annual Mother’s Day Radiothon hosted at JPMRHC

This new Breast Imaging Software will be used to allow radiologists to report on lesion location including distance from nipple, skin, chest wall and the lesion’s overall diameter. This is valuable information should surgery be required; the breast imaging software will enhance our current service and provide a path to MRI guided breast biopsy in our region – currently those patients are being sent to St John’s.  In the coming months, and with your support, we hope to meet this ambitious goal!

Our staff and volunteers had a wonderful day for our 31st annual Mother’s Day Radiothon which broadcasted via on 650 VOCM on Thursday, May 11th, 2023 in support of this vital piece of equipment, and thanks to another AMAZING show of support we saw another $45,000 come in for our Radiothon with a special thanks to the Gander Co-op 50/50 Committee, VOCM Cares, the Gander Shrine Club, the Gander Lions Club, Gander Women’s Institute, JPM Pharmacy, JPM Laboratory, JPM Medical Imaging and of course our corporate sponsors from Canadian Tire and Golden Scissors for stopping by to show your support. We also received an additional $60,000 Matching Grant thanks to John Haggie and the Department of Health and Community Services. We are now at $115,000 of our $125,000 goal, and we just need to go a little further!

Please think of all people who have been affected by breast cancer in Central Newfoundland, and lets work together to provide them with them best possible care at our regional hospital.
