One in Three People will be affected by cancer in their lifetime. Cancer patients need much more than medicine, thats where we help with emotional services such as Counselling, camps for children, practical supports to help rebuild the lives of families.

Long-Term Impact

We will help over 2,500 people affected by cancer on a annual basis. This figure will increase by 50% over the next five years. With your help, we can continue to provide these vital services to anyone affected by cancer in Ireland. We will help them rebuild their lives and equip them with the tools needed to move on after their cancer experience.
