2024 Spring Appeal

Every day an average of 80 Canadian women are diagnosed with breast cancer. It is estimated that about 1 in 8 Canadian women will develop breast cancer during their lifetime.  These are sobering statistics and they drive home how important it is to have the best resources possible at our regional hospital when fighting this terrifying disease.

Yarmouth Hospital Foundation is committed to bringing new medical technology to the Yarmouth Regional Hospital this Spring with the purchase of a MOLLI® system to help fight breast cancer. (Cost is $111,543)

2024 Spring appealThe MOLLI® system is an innovative technology that allows radiologists to mark cancerous lesions with a MOLLI® marker, a tiny magnetic tissue marker roughly the size of a sesame seed. The localization procedure takes about five minutes and can happen within 30 days prior to the surgery.

In the OR the surgeon uses the MOLLI® wand to pick up the magnetic signal from the marker and sends images and sounds to MOLLI® tablet that guides the surgeon to the exact location of the lesion. Using the MOLLI® system surgeons remove lesions more efficiently with increased patient comfort.

Together we can drastically improve both the patient experience and our health care provider experience in our fight against breast cancer. “The MOLLI® system will enable our healthcare team to enhance the overall patient experience with state-of-the-art-care.” says radiologist Dr. Beth Furey.
