Irish Cancer Society Peer-to-Peer Support
Many patients find it helpful to talk to someone who has had a diagnosis of cancer and who has recovered. The Irish Cancer Society can put you in touch with someone who has been trained to give you emotional and practical support. All volunteers have had a personal experience of cancer and understand the emotional and physical impact of the disease. If you would like to make contact with a volunteer, please call the National Cancer Helpline 1800 200 700.
