CanCare4Living – an Introduction
In the Republic of Ireland, over 300 children, adolescents & young adults (CAYA) are diagnosed with cancer each year – they receive treatment with comprehensive medical support across a wide range of disciplines.
Irish cure rates for CAYA cancers reach and exceed 80%, comparable to best European experience. Treatments include radiation, chemotherapy and stem cell transplant. While essential, and increasingly effective, these treatments can lead to late effects which require long term follow up.
Some Survivors experience medical, cognitive and psychosocial problems and require ongoing access to multi-disciplinary medical and counselling services.
All deserve lifelong support to monitor and protect their health and well-being and to ensure they enjoy the best possible quality of life.
CanCare4Living was set up to support and represent survivors and their families and to ensure their voice is heard voice “Nothing About Us Without Us”.
We believe all survivors should have access to comprehensive & structured long term support to identify any potential issues as soon as possible and to ensure they enjoy the best possible quality of life. They’ve earned it.
We’d invite you to sign up on our ‘contact us’ page and we’ll keep you updated our activities,
yours in hope
Patricia and Garry
