Can­cer Sup­port Group hosts cof­fee morn­ing

Fingal Independent - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

BAL­BRIG­GAN Can­cer Sup­port Group held a cof­fee morn­ing re­cently to raise funds for its much-needed ser­vices.

The group is a vol­un­tary based or­gan­i­sa­tion which caters for pa­tients, car­ers and rel­a­tives af­fected by a can­cer di­ag­no­sis, who may be seek­ing in­for­ma­tion, ad­vice or sup­port.

Speak­ing to The Fin­gal In­de­pen­dent, Chair­per­son Cora Nelis said: ‘It was great to meet peo­ple who had never been in be­fore, to let them know the ser­vices we pro­vide.

‘Peo­ple were very gen­er­ous, but it’s more about mak­ing peo­ple aware of the ser­vice. Gen­er­ally what hap­pens with these cof­fee morn­ings is that you’ll have some­one come up a cou­ple of weeks later who wouldn’t have come up be­fore­hand, so it just makes them aware of what we do.’

The group of­fers a ‘meet and greet’ ser­vice ev­ery Mon­day, Wed­nes­day and Satur­day for any­one who’s had a can­cer di­ag­no­sis, or for fam­ily mem­bers who may be strug­gling.

Bal­brig­gan Can­cer Sup­port Group can be found at: Unit 23, Bal­brig­gan Busi­ness Park and by phone at 01 8410116
