EUROPEAN NEWS: Odd Fellow and Rebekah Lodges on the west coast of Norway gave £ 70,000, - to PET / CT Scanner Campaign

Odd Fellow Sam Project, a humanitarian action group of the Rebekah and Odd Fellow lodge, has voluntarily aimed to improve patient stay in hospital for cancer patients. They make the example by serving rolls and coffee for cancer patients. On wednesday, they gave 70,000 kroner for High-tech Medical Foundation Research Fund that collects money for a PET / CT scanner that can detect such cancer at a far earlier stage than today. PET / CT scanner will be donated to the Haukeland University Hospital. 

Fundraising campaign has nearly reached the goal, and the preparations to establish a separate building, the purchase of the scanner and educate the medical staff is already underway. Fundraising campaign has so far been a resounding success, thanks to second generous donors who Trond Mohn, who gave 54 million from Frank Mohn Foundation, an anonymous donor who has benefited from a PET / CT scanner in Germany gave a million plus everyone who bought lykkearmbåndet to 20 million. The same bracelet used for other Fire players including when they won the Cup final 4-1 over the Lightning. Hence the nickname "lykkearmbåndet." 

Odd Fellow Sam Project was started in 1984 by Sverre W. Monsen logemedlemmer by voluntarily serving rolls and coffee for cancer patients at Haukeland Hospital. The project has now evolved to be a staff of around 90 people from the 7 lodges in Bergen, which takes care of the practical work and serving of coffee, tea, sandwiches etc. The measure has in the last 4-5 years has also been carried out on Haraldsplass hospitals and Sunniva Hospice. 

"This gift of $ 70,000 is in respect Odd Fellow Sam Project's 20th anniversary this year for work at Haukeland Hospital. The money was given by the seven lodges of Bergen and the approximately 30 supportive lodges on the west coast, "said Chairman David Thompsen when he presented the check to Svein Allan Pedersen of High-tech Medical Foundation Research Fund.
