Testimonial Julie

A visit to Tuam Cancer Care for massage/reflexology and a chat over a glass of juice in a warm and friendly environment is the best medicine anyone could take. !

It is a privilege to work as a Volunteer at Tuam Cancer Care. To endeavour to help people, through what is a stressful and life-changing period, is most rewarding. For me, it is a humbling experience

Our Services


Getting Involved

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.
