Support for Forever Friends Appeal

Support for Forever Friends Appeal

Staff at Touchstone’s Bath office have agreed to continue their support of Bath’s Royal United Hospital’s Forever Friends Appeal in 2012 through sponsoring and taking part in the Walk of Life being organised on 26 May next year which will raise money for the Cancer Care Campaign at RUH.

Most people are familiar with the different ways doctors can produce images of the body: X-Rays, Ultrasounds, CT Scans, MRI Scans.  A Gamma Camera is another, less well known way of producing pictures to help diagnosis and treatment.

Cancer affects one in three people in the UK, and the catchment area of the RUH is no exception.  Early treatment is essential in combating the disease and a primary use of a Gamma Camera is to diagnose some of the myriad types of cancer that can affect us.  It can also be used in the detection of heart disease, bone pain and neurological disorders.

The Forever Friends Appeal aims to raise £650,000 to purchase this latest technology which combines a traditional Gamma Camera and a CT Scanner, thereby providing very detailed images. 

These images will both identify even the earliest abnormality and accurately pinpoint its location for subsequent radiotherapy treatment.  A Gamma-CT Scanner also improves the patient experience as they no longer need to go through two separate, scans.

Details of the walk can be found here:
