We provide a range of support services
The aim of the EVeCanS Study is to understand if and/or how the supports (e.g. Counselling, Touch Therapies, Exercise, Information, Entitlement Advice and Transport) offered by East Galway & Midlands Cancer Support are helping cancer patients, their families and friends to live better with cancer

Through generous fundraising events, EGM purchased a bus to facilitate patients wishing to travel from Ballinasloe to UCHG for radiotherapy/cancer treatment.
There is no charge for this service for individual patients, if a relative/friend wish to accompany the patient a fee of €5 will apply. Patients must contact us directly here at the centre to book their seats.
The bus leaves the centre here at 10 am prompt and will travel to Loughrea for pick up at 10.20am sharp. Please contact us on 0909642088/087 9840304
