This year, we are excited to announce that proceeds will be directed 100% to funding the Boston Scientific SpyGlass DS System.

The SpyGlass DS System enables direct visualization of the pancreatic and bile ducts, is used to evalute suspected benign and malignant conditions, and is used for the treatment of difficult stones and strictures.  This unit is less evasive, does not require sedation, and enables high resolution imaging and therapy during an ERCP procedure to target biopsies, fragment stones through lithotripsy, and remove residual stones, stone fragments, and foreign bodies such as migrated stents.

Using the SpyGlass DS System compared to traditional ERCP may result in more efficient evaluation, help reduce the need for additional testing and repeat procedures, and enable patients to receive treatment sooner.

This year we have once again teamed up with Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation in supporting the purchase of equipment for UHNBC.  We hope you will join us in making this a reality for our healthcare region.  Thank you for considering a gift to make a difference right here at home in the north, where we live, work, and play.
