How can we help?
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.
Cancer Care West also provides training for oncology staff and supports research into patient care.
Our individual support services are here to help you whether you are a cancer patient or someone you love has been affected by cancer
At our Galway Cancer Support Centre we offer a variety of courses, classes and support groups for patients and families
I simply wouldn’t have had access to any of these support services if I had had to pay for them myself.
You think about saving for retirement or holidays, but you don’t think about saving for being sick
At Inis Aoibhinn people are kind and understanding, no-one intrudes but yet you know they are there for you.
Organising the event has helped me to deal with Mags’ diagnosis and gave me a purpose during a difficult time.
It was fantastic to be around other people who had had similar experiences, especially after being isolated for so long.
