Most of us have watched first-hand a friend, a sister or a mum go through breast cancer and we know how difficult and life-changing diagnosis can be.
The Irish Cancer Society provides breast cancer patients all around the country with free information, care and advice every day.
It’s been a very difficult year for cancer patients and their families, with coronavirus bringing additional anxieties and concerns and forcing many to stay apart from family and friends at a time when they badly need emotional support.
The services provided by the Irish Cancer Society are needed now, more than ever.
In 2019 the Society’s Support Line and Daffodil Centres answered more than 4,500 queries from breast cancer patients and their loved ones.

Thanks to the support of the public the Society also funded 2,747 counseling sessions for breast cancer patients last year, and have dedicated almost €10 million to supporting ground-breaking breast cancer research projects over the last decade.
Volunteer Drivers who transported breast cancer patients to 3,269 chemotherapy sessions, while our Night Nurses provided 477 nights of end-of-life care for breast cancer patients.
None of this would be possible without the generosity of the public as the Irish Cancer Society receives just 3pc of their funding from the State.
