Dance show for Breast Care Research

Charity dance for breast care research

Emily’s Dance Bristol Annual Charity Show will be raising funds for Breast Care research this year for Southmead Hospital. If it is anything like previous years, it will be a fun evening of staff fulfilling their dreams to sweep the dancefloor like the celebrities in Strictly Come Dancing.  Dr Lyn Jones, Consultant Breast Radiologist, already has big plans to dance the Tango to a string quartet.

“I am delighted that Emily has chosen us this year for her event, and it's raising money to support some invaluable ground-breaking research here at Southmead hospital. Every year, more than 11,000 women die from breast cancer in the UK. That's 30 women dying from breast cancer every day”.

The research will examine how new technology can help to diagnose breast cancer earlier, because finding breast cancer early saves lives.  Breast cancer survival is improving and has doubled in the last 40 years in the UK. To improve survival from breast cancer further, our research is looking at whether a new high-tech test (called FAST MRI), might be able to find aggressive cancers earlier than mammograms, could be suitable for use within the NHS Breast Screening Programme.” 

The show is on Saturday 9 November 2019

Bristol Grammar School
University Rd, Bristol BS8 1SR

Dr Lyn Jones shares with us the importance of this area of research.
