Peer-to-peer support for parents of children with cancer

Two mothers talking over tea

Would you like to speak to a trained parent volunteer who really knows what you are going through, and understands what it is like to have a child with cancer?

All of our parent volunteers have children who, in the past, have been treated for cancer. This service is also available to other adult family members (e.g. grandparents, aunts etc).

Speak to a parent who's been there

To be referred to one of our trained parent volunteers please call the Irish Cancer Society Support Line on Freephone 1800 200 700 or by email.
