About the Manx Breast Cancer Support Group
Manx Breast Cancer Support Group is a local Manx registered charity and support group who want to help anyone affected by breast cancer on the Isle of Man.
All money raised by the charity stays on the Island and helps to improve the Patient Experience for Patients diagnosed with Breast Cancer on the Island.
The Manx Breast Cancer Support Group has raised around £3.5m since it was registered in 2012.
It has fundraised for, and helped to design and build the Manx Breast Unit. Which was officially opened in 2016. Cost £1.6m.
Together with Mannin Cancers we also fundraised £1.5m to replace the Islands ageing CT Scanners and replace them with State of the Art Spectral CT Scanners. The Charity also totally refurbished the Reception Area for the new CT /MRI Scanning Suite.
We have furnished and equipped the Islands Patient Transfer Quiet Rooms at Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Ronaldsway Airport.
We fund Lanyards for Patient Transfer together with the Naseems Manx Brain Tumour Charity.
We also fund the Oncotype DX test for Patients recently diagnosed on our Island.
