National Cancer Strategy 17

Minister Simon Harris has launched the National Cancer Strategy #cancerstrategy17.

Minister Harris' speech on the 5th July, 2017 tells us of the strategy's ambitious aims around survivorship and increasing the quality of life for those whose lives have been affected by cancer. 

Here at Cork ARC, we understand the psychological needs of cancer patients and their families, and our 14 years of service has given us a wide set of skills and knowledge to respond to the changing needs in the community. As an independent cancer support organisation our aim is to make a difference to the lives of those affected by cancer by providing practical psychological and emotional supports, free of charge. 

We look forward to what strategies the full #cancerstrategy17 puts forward and are open to what the future will look like for patients, survivors, family members and caregivers.
