Cancer continues to be one of the leading causes of death in San Mateo County, and we know that early detection of cancer leads to better treatment options. Mills-Peninsula Institute seeks to increase cancer survivorship through the purchase of the most advanced diagnostic imaging system called the PET/CT. Our patients will benefit from more accurate diagnoses and targeted treatments while reducing radiation of non-cancerous tissue.
Thoughtful donations from the Mills-Peninsula community have helped us renovate facilities and install this state-of-the-art imaging tool that combines two scan techniques in one exam, but we are only halfway to our goal. Total cost to renovate and install the PET/CT is $5 million, of which $3 million will be solicited from donors in the community.
