NRBCT trustees handing over the portable ultrasound machine to breast surgeon Ros Pochin

The Nelson Regional Breast Cancer Trust is a registered charitable trust, (CC44411), formed in June 2010.

The trust raises money to benefit breast cancer patients and their families throughout the top of the South Island, all funds raised stay in the local area.

To date the trust has purchased a Portable Ultrasound Machine which is used on a daily basis to help diagnose patients who present with a breast lump. We have also raised funds to purchase numerous items that help keep breast cancer patients comfortable and occupied whilst receiving their chemotherapy treatment, from warm rugs through to portable DVD players and magazine subscriptions.
