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.
