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, October 17th and Sunday, October 23rd, 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 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.
