Cork ARC Cancer Support House understands the impact that a breast cancer diagnosis can have on you and your family, and our dedicated Breast Cancer Nurse Counsellor offers support and compassion every step of the way.

The role of Fiona Moriarty, the Breast Cancer Nurse Counsellor at Cork ARC is to support those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and their families through a dedicated support programme.

It involves creating supports either on a one to one basis or within a group setting and includes giving practical advice, emotional and psychological support, as well as facilitating educational sessions that help manage the impact of breast cancer.

BREAST CANCER SUPPORT PROGRAMME

  • One to one support,

  • Breast cancer support group (runs in Spring and Autumn)

  • Pilates for women after breast cancer

  • Managing hormonal therapies Information Morning

  • Lymphoedema Information Morning

  • Young Women with Breast Cancer Networking & Information Day

I felt strangely alone when my treatment ended, so I joined the Cork ARC breast cancer support group. It was so helpful to hear other people’s experiences and realise I was not alone - knowing that what you feel is both normal and natural.
