An idea born out of frustration
Paul Evans and Tom Sanders accept the award
The development of the Early Warning Scan for breast cancer started with an idea.
An idea by Tom Sanders, which came out of sheer frustration.
His wife, Paulette Kreté,was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2019.
For 10 years, her mammogram results had shown no abnormalities.
Her particular variant of cancer is not visible on mammograms.
The fact that it’s possible for breast cancer not to be seen made Tom Sanders, an entrepreneur, start thinking.
He believes that other techniques might have discovered that cancer variant. Techniques that are not yet common in breast cancer research.
Tom’s idea won an incentive prize of 25,000 euros
