For the past 5 years, we have come together to honour and celebrate cancer survivors and to recognise their supporters. This year to continue this tradition in a way that protects the health and well being of our community, we are making the Survivors Celebration Walk a virtual event. And although we will miss gathering in person in the Palace Grounds, we are excited about the opportunity to celebrate, virtually, with cancer survivors and their families and friends.
We are asking you to get together with your own family and supporters, choose a time and a place that is special to you and walk 5km on Sunday 11th of October.
This event has become Tuam Cancer Care’s biggest fundraiser in the calendar and this year, more than ever, we need your help to support the cancer related services that the Centre offers.
“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.”
