Cancer Week 2016 – Site Launch!
Cancer Week 2016 – New Site Launch
We’re delighted to welcome you to the brand new site to support Irish Cancer Week 2016. Over the last three years Irish Cancer week has been growing and helping raise badly needed funds and this year is the first year of a full national campaign. It’s time to start a conversation about cancer in every community in Ireland. With someone being diagnosed with cancer in Ireland every 15 minutes it’s time we put cancer on the national agenda.
Raising Awareness About Cancer
Cancer Week Ireland 2016 is all about raising awareness about cancer and to help make that happen there will be hundreds (and hopefully thousands!) of events held through out the country between the 17th and the 23rd of October. Be it a lecture or a cake sale, a play or a pilgrimage, or back packing session or a bungee jump we want you take part in Cancer Week this year.
How You Can Help
The Irish Cancer Society relies primarily on funding from the public and for Cancer Week 2016 we want you to help us try get the message to ever corner of Ireland – that early detection is vital and that you can survive and beat cancer. To help us get that message out we need you to host events in your community and start the conversation about cancer. The more we talk about cancer the more people will be able to detect it early and increase their odds at positive outcomes. Register your event here!
If you’re not able to host an event check and see what events are happening in your area and make sure you help support them by attending or sharing via social media. You can also support Irish Cancer Week by making an online donation and all of the proceeds will go to maintaining and improving our cancer support services.
We hope you like our new site and now that you’re hear why not check out what events are already created, create your own and do your bit to start the conversation about cancer this year!
