Stephen's story
I am running the Great North Run 2019 in support of the Women's Cancer Detection Society.  The Women's Cancer Detection Society is a local charity founded in 1964 to help local women. The WCDS carried out pioneering work in breast cancer screening by running a charity screening service for nearly 20 years. In 1988 the NHS Breast Screening Programme was established and the Charity has since given support by providing equipment and grants for research.

The Gateshead Breast Screening Programme screens women living in Gateshead, South Tyneside, Durham and Sunderland, and provide equipment to diagnose early breast cancer:

          • Donated state of the art biopsy system
          • Updated ultrasound machine
          • Provide grants for Breast Cancer Research
          • Support the cost of post graduate researchers
