“I want to help others that may be facing into or going through something similar to me. I want to show them what’s possible after treatment. I want them to know that someone is always thinking about you and you are never on your own.”

How 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.
