Our Centre aims to address the needs of its clients, whatever those needs may be. We can achieve this because many of our volunteers have been through similar experiences and as a result are empathetic to those currently battling with cancer.

WE ARE HERE TO HELP!

East Galway & Midlands Cancer Support, formed in 2012, is a non-profit charitable organisation which provides a network of psychological, emotional and practical support for those diagnosed with cancer.

We have multiple Counsellors, as well as therapists specialising in complementary treatments working with us on a day-to-day basis. Our centre would not exist without the commitment and dedication of our staff and amazing volunteers.

The number of people attending weekly has now reached 200+. All the support we offer is free of charge. We have also become a member of the European Cancer Patient Coalition (ECPC) which gives us both a political and medical voice in Europe. We provide a full-time drop in Centre as well as a 24 hour phone service.

OUR LATEST ACTIVITY

  • GO Relaunch
    On the 8th March 2022 we were delighted to have Sharon O’Toole and Yvonne O’Meara present to give a talk on Gynae Oncology Cancers and the new ThisIsGO platform. The talk was broadcast over Zoom for those who were not able to attend and the speakers gave their permission for it to be recorded.
  • WORLD GYNECOLOGIC ONCOLOGY DAY
    Ovarian, uterine, cervix and other gynecological cancers are among the most common cancers affecting women, but collectively attract less attention than they deserve from the public and policy makers. Women themselves may be unaware of the sometime vague symptoms or may be too embarrassed to consult a doctor.

    These were made and donated by a wonderful member of the community. They have shared a guide so you can make your own
