“As a young lady, I often felt that I am the only one who is going through chemotherapy at such a young age. Tuam Cancer Care showed me that this is not true, my partner and I are not completely alone on this tough journey. They provided services such as reflexology, reiki and yoga classes to take care of my tormented body and they also provided counselling to help me through my mental struggles. Moreover their brilliant volunteers were always there to give me comfort and a cuppa when I felt down.
Thank you so much, you really helped me to survive.”

I find Tuam Cancer Care of tremendous benefit to me, physically, mentally and emotionally
I consider it an absolute privilege to be a Support Volunteer in Tuam Cancer Care and am in awe of the courage and dignity of all the people who avail of our services
Welcome to Tuam Cancer Care
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.
