The Borders Barmy Army pounded out £524.50 towards a PDT (Photo Dynamic Therapy) lamp for Borders General Hospital’s dermatology department by taking to a treadmill at the hospital for a day-long fundraiser.
PDT is a non-invasive procedure for patients with extensive sun damage of the skin or sun damage on difficult-to-treat areas where other treatments such as surgery or cryotherapy may be difficult.
PDT selectively destroys tumour cells while preserving healthy tissue.
