Welcome to Cancer Care West
PEOPLE IN OUR COMMUNITY are affected by cancer every day, directly or indirectly through a loved one. At Cancer Care West our vision is that no-one should have to go through a cancer experience alone, and everything we do has this vision in mind.
We provide professional community-based practical and emotional support services, free of charge, to anyone affected by cancer and to their families.
Our services fall into two categories: support services covering a range of offerings in our support centres in Galway and Letterkenny and accommodation services for patients on radiotherapy offered from our lodge in University Hospital Galway. Outside of the services we also fund a number of specific, patient focused research projects as well as co-funding projects which advance cancer patient treatments.
Our Mission is to provide professional support services to cancer patients and their families throughout our region
Our Vision is that no one will go through cancer alone.
