This conference is an essential part of the Irish Cancer Society's work. It is where they hear from cancer patients and seek to understand and address the needs of the whole person not just the cancer. It is where they share, learn and support.
You will hear from a range of speakers who will share their experiences, stories and expert knowledge. There are practical sessions with art, writing, music, sleep, exercise, nutrition and much, much more.

This year the walk takes place on Sunday 14th October, in The Place Grounds Tuam, starting at 2pm.
The walk gives us an opportunity to celebrate cancer survivors and their families and friends, in a lively, warm atmosphere. The event also reflects the support that people receive through our services, with music and entertainment and at the same time raises much needed funds for the Centre.
In addition to the Walk we will again be having a tree planting remembrance ceremony where people can tie ribbons to our newly planted tree in memory of people they have lost through cancer. Ribbons can be purchased on the day for €2.

Don’t forget registration is FREE. Sponsorship cards are provided on registration.
