Olympic BMX star Liam Phillips presents cheque to Musgrove
7:00pm Friday 1st February 2013 in Somerset
The OSNA Fund has already raised £35,000 towards the £75,000 machine which can detect cancer cells in lymph glands after an operation in minutes rather than days.
The machine in place at the moment can take up to a week to give results back to patients.
Liam, from Burnham-on-Sea, said it is a fund close to his heart as his grandmother was treated for breast cancer at the hospital.
Breast Surgeon Jasper Gill said: “It will make a huge difference to the ladies in Somerset with breast cancer.”
The fundraising team are holding a launch party at Cosy Club in Taunton on Wednesday, February 6, at 7.30pm if you want to show your support.
