Welcome to Tuam Cancer Care
When a person is diagnosed with cancer a journey begins to fight the disease at a medical level, requiring various treatments and interventions such as, surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, x-rays, scans and frequent consultations with their Oncologist and Medical Team.
But a diagnosis of cancer often leads to a crisis of the mind and spirit as well as the body. This is an area where less resources are available and many individuals and their families often have difficulty finding the emotional and practical support they require. Tuam Cancer Care is a charitable organisation that offers this support in Tuam and the surrounding areas.
All services offered are free of charge and confidentiality is ensured.

|Western People West of Ireland Women's Mini Marathon|
It's that time of year again ladies, when we ask if you are up for the challenge of participating in a 10km mini marathon on behalf of Tuam Cancer Care Centre.
Following feedback we received from last year's participants, you told us you would like to run nearer to home this year. So we are delighted to be involved with the West of Ireland event which will be held in Castlebar on Sunday 4th May at 12 noon.
The Mini Marathon and Tuam Cancer Care
Runners from Tuam Cancer Care Centre have been participating in Women's 10km mini marathons for nearly 10 years. The funds raised from the run represent the Centre's single largest source of funds and are vital to our ability to provide our services all year round.
Women of all ages and fitness levels take part. All participants have to do is to get fit enough to walk, run or jog the 10kms and be 15 years or over on the day. There is a registration fee of €20.00.
By participating on behalf of Tuam Cancer Care and registering with us, we will supply you with complimentary transport to and from the event as well as a Tuam Cancer Care T-shirt and sponsorship card. Whether you are a walker, jogger or runner, you can follow the training schedule published in the Western People each week by logging onto www.westofirelandwomensminimarathon.com.
Best of luck with the training!
