An Irish Cancer Society night nurseHow you'll help

One of the programmes your funds will help support is our night nursing service, which is a free, nationwide service the Irish Cancer Society provides to people who want to spend
their final days at home. By signing up to run the a marathon you will help make sure an Irish Cancer Society night nurse is there for people when they need one most; sitting with them, comforting them, answering their questions and giving them the best possible care.
