The 23-year-old has reached her goal of becoming a medical im- aging technologist and now specialises as a mammographer. Having friends and family who have been affected by breast cancer prompted her to get into the field. I love that my train- ing is supporting a great cause and one that s vital for women s health. I really enjoyed my familiarisation week in mammography as an undergraduate medical imaging student and couldn t wait to begin my postgraduate mammo- graphy training. Paying for her career path was made a lot easier for the Waiuku woman because of a scholarship from the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation. It is now taking applications for this year. Ms McIlmoyle received $3000 from the foun- dation which paid the fees for her postgraduate certificate in health sci- ence (mammography) at Unitec. She completed her postgraduate training in 2010 and now works at the Counties Manukau Breast Imaging Service. Her role includes diag- nostic work and breast screening four days a week and she spends one day at Middlemore Hos- pital doing diagnostic x-rays. You deal with people s lives and their livelihood. It s a chal- lenge but it s always rewarding, Ms McIl- moyle says. Breast cancer is the major cancer killer of New Zealand women. Two thousand six hun- dred women are diag- nosed and almost 650 die from the disease each year. Applicants for the foundation s mammo- graphy imaging tech- nologists scholarship programme must have their applications in by February 28 for first semester applicants or July 25 for second sem- ester applicants.
