The Mater Breast Cancer Appeal Supporting BreastHealth Mater

Since fundraising began over five years ago for The Mater Breast Cancer Appeal over €2.1 million has been allocated to the Breast Cancer Unit (now known as BreastHealth Mater) in The Mater Misericordiae University Hospital.

With the generous support of donors around the country the Mater Foundation has funded:

  • The refurbishment of offices, and a counselling room in St Gabriel’s Ward.
  • The purchase of the first Digital Mammography Machine.
  • The purchase of an Ultrasound and Digital Faxitron Machine.
  • The provision of a Cancer Care Coordinator.
  • The part payment of the refurbishment of BreastHealth Mater and purchasing a second Digital Mammography Machine and Mobile Ultrasound.
  • The development of the Family Risk Assessment Unit.
  • The development of a Bio Bank for research
  • The purchase of a new Breast MRI Coil – this piece of equipment helps with early detection.

We would like to thank everyone who has given to our appeal so generously and we do hope to continue our work to raise money for The Mater Breast Cancer Appeal.  If you would like to help or make a donation please do contact us.
