PET scanner brings peace building award for Hilir By Minnath Azeez View(s): View(s):The first ever Award for Volunteering for Peace Building was presented to Hilir Mohamed for his efforts in creating racial harmony through the initiative of raising funds to donate a PET scanner to the Apeksha Hospital in Maharagama. “I saw such a project going beyond simply donating a machine to fight cancer. 252 million through public donations in three months and handed over the machine to the Maharagama Cancer Hospital in April last year. The PET scanner can do up to 100 scans a month. The Fight Cancer Team will launch the next phase of its project this month — to raise funds to donate two radiotherapy machines (Linac and Tomo), an MRI scanner and a CT scanner to the Cancer Hospital.
