Soroptimist International of Santa Clarita Valley recently presented an $8,000 check to Terry Brucknell, director of the Sheila R. Veloz Breast Imaging Center. 

The donation to the Breast Imaging Center was a portion of the proceeds raised during Soroptimist International of SCV’s eighth annual Bras for a Cause Denim and Diamond Hoedown fundraiser held Oct. 2 at the Tournament Players Club in Valencia. 

The annual Bras for a Cause features elaborately decorated bras that are auctioned off to raise funds for breast cancer services in the SCV.

The donation from Soroptimist International of SCV will go towards the 2011 Benefit Project to purchase a Wi-Fi enabled ViOptix T. OxTM Tissue Oximeter for the Breast Imaging Center.

The device measures the oxygen flow in transplanted tissue following a breast flap reconstructive surgery and transmits the data to any internet accessible device. 

The T. Ox makes it possible for clinicians to immediately identify tissue health and potential distress earlier and thereby initiate appropriate intervention more rapidly to improve patient outcomes. 

The cost of this system is $40,000.

The Sheila R. Veloz Breast Imaging Center is located on the campus of Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital in Valencia.
Soroptimist International of SCV is a volunteer organization for business and professional women who work to improve the lives of women and girls locally and throughout the world.
