The centre will provide a quiet, safe place for patients and families to help them deal with their cancer diagnosis or to receive ongoing support during their cancer journey through one-to-one support, peer-group sessions and bereavement counselling in a nonclinical and relaxed environment. Erica Mulvihill, Cancer Nurse Specialist says –  “The new centre will be a safe haven with comfortable non-intimidating surroundings where privacy and dignity are paramount, a nonclinical environment where patients can sit with family and nurses and go through the news that they have been diagnosed with cancer.” We’ve raised €250,000 to date but we need a further €760,000 to make the Cancer Care Centre a reality.
