Meet Elaine our new Childhood Cancer Co-Ordinator
Elaine recently joined the Society after many years working with Children’s Health Ireland (Crumlin) oncology services.
Her expertise will be invaluable to help ensure the Irish Cancer Society is responding in the best possible way to the needs of children and families whose lives are disrupted by a devastating cancer diagnosis.
Elaine said she is excited to bring more than 25 years of experience working as a nurse to the Society.
“We can’t change the outcome of a cancer diagnosis but I believe with appropriate support and information we can make the journey easier for all involved,” she said.
