TB Vets help provide early lung cancer detection

TB Vets Charitable Foundation 2014
Royal Columbian Hospital can see into the furthest areas of the lungs to detect and treat life-threatening cancers earlier, courtesy of a donation from the TB Vets Charitable Foundation.
A $20,000 gift to Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation will help purchase a radial EBUS probe. The tool will allow physicians, via radial ultrasound, to target and accurately sample/biopsy peripheral lung lesions.
TB Vets helps British Columbians to breathe easier by providing life-saving equipment, funding ground-breaking research, and distributing grants to respiratory therapy students at Thompson Rivers University.
TB Vets Mission Statement: Helping British Columbians with respiratory disease lead healthy and productive lives.
