A cancer diagnosis profoundly changes a personís life. Many people feel alone, isolated and afraid. Some keep their fears to themselves in order not to cause further trauma to their families. Others simply have no one to share their fears with and many find it hard to get back to their old life when treatment is finished. Often people find it difficult to ask for help and are not sure where to turn.
A premises in Walkin Street (see below) has kindly been donated rent free by Modern Printers for 5 years. At the newly opened Cois Nore Cancer Support Centre all services are provided free of charge and the Centre depend on donations from the local community and fundraising efforts, like the Kells Kings Charity Cycle, to assist them.
