Prof. Seamus O'Reilly is the Chairman of Cork ARC Cancer Support House's Board of Trustees, a Consultant Medical Oncologist and Clinical Professor of Medicine at University College Cork.

Back in the early 2000's, Prof O'Reilly's pioneering work in setting up Cork ARC Cancer Support House helped to ensure that patients would have a space such as ours to help them through their cancer diagnosis and treatment.

His daily work in the clinics and wards brings the expertise, understanding and passion needed to guide the development of our service.

Prof. O'Reilly was interviewed on RTÉ News last week following the research findings around #survivorship levels from the National Cancer Registry. Watch the clip here.

We'd like to take a moment to thank Prof. O'Reilly and our voluntary Board of Trustees who further the work of Cork ARC Cancer Support House in Cork city, Bantry and Youghal and at the Niche Community Health Project, with their commitment, expertise and dedication to the project.
