BREAST cancer could be detected earlier with a new machine that is being bought by West Suffolk hospital.
The ultrasound machine, uses the latest technology to locate cancers that previously may have gone undetected.
It is being bought with the help of £15,596 raised by Lisa Eaden from Sudbury area a patient of the Breast Unit who organised a number of events aided by a committee she set up called "The Bacchanalia: Raising the Roof for Breast Cancer Care."
And this is not the first time that she has given so much money to the hospital.
In 2002, she presented £21,410 to the hospital on behalf of the committee, which was money raised from a drinks evening which featured a West Indian band.
Consultant breast surgeon Mr Oduru Ravisekar said: "We are delighted to receive such a large sum of money for the Breast Unit, and are very grateful to the Bacchanalia Committee for their wonderful efforts.
