Survivors Supporting Survivors is the Irish Cancer Society’s one-to-one support programme, providing emotional and practical support to newly diagnosed patients.
Being diagnosed with cancer can be one of the most difficult situations a person will have to face in their lifetime. All of our Survivors Supporting Survivors volunteers have had a cancer diagnosis. The volunteers have been carefully selected and trained to give support, practical information and reassurance when you need it most. You can speak to someone who really knows what you're going through.
Survivor Supporting Survivors aims to:
You can get support if you're facing a possible diagnosis, if you've been recently diagnosed or if you're dealing with the side effects of treatment, including surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormonal therapy.
To talk to someone, call our National Cancer Helpline on Freephone 1800 200 700. It's open Monday-Thursday from 9am to 7pm and Friday from 9am to 5pm.
