"I asked my doctor right away about it and he explained a little bit more about it with me and I decided at that point in time we need one of these in Sudbury."
**The challenge for Lougheed, and for others with bladder cancer, is that Sudbury does not have such a tool. **
"They’re fairly rare across Canada," Lougheed said. "It’s something that’s been approved by Health Canada for quite some time now probably three to five years. But there’s probably only eight to 10 instruments across the country."
**Lougheed decided he would help lead the charge to get one in the city, and to raise awareness of the disease. **
