“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
