About Us

  • Image of a woman: More people are getting cancer than ever before
  • 40,000 people are diagnosed with cancer every year in Ireland
  • Image of a man: We want to stop cancer in its tracks

By 2020, 1 in 2 of us will receive a cancer diagnosis in our lifetime. The Irish Cancer Society is working to stop this. By investing in cancer research and providing care and support to people affected by cancer, the Irish Cancer Society is stopping cancer in its tracks. Through research we are finding out more and more about how to diagnose, treat and how to stop cancer before its starts. By providing information, advice and support we are supporting people through their cancer experience and helping to reduce the fear of a cancer diagnosis. Read more about what we do.

We want you to know where your donated money is spent and what we do in the Irish Cancer Society.
