Cancer Week Ireland 2017 - Irish Cancer Society

Cancer Week Ireland

Monday September 25th – Sunday 1st October 2017

Welcome to Cancer Week Ireland – a national initiative to get people talking about cancer and how we can prevent it, spot it, treat it, and survive and thrive afterwards.

Cancer affects one in three Irish people at some stage of their lives. It has touched every family in every community. More people are being diagnosed with cancer every year, yet more and more people are surviving and living with and beyond the disease.

This is why we need to talk about cancer.

Cancer Week Ireland wants to start a national conversation about cancer this October. It is about getting everyone involved in a conversation about cancer and how we can prevent it, spot it earlier, improve treatment, and survive and thrive afterwards.

Between Monday, September 25th and Sunday, October 1st, Cancer Week Ireland wants to inspire communities and organisations, large and small, to host an event and be part of the conversation.

Cancer Week Ireland offers an opportunity for health professionals, cancer researchers and cancer survivors to connect with each other and to connect with their communities

It offers an opportunity to talk about the signs and symptoms of cancer, dealing with a cancer diagnosis, advances in cancer treatment and care, and the need for psychological support.

This September & October we invite you to be part of Cancer Week Ireland by hosting an event in your community, organisation, or workplace. Whether you have your own personal story to share, are working at the coalface of cancer services, or are investigating new ways to beat the disease join in the conversation this October.
