Hundreds of people are expected to attend the Irish Cancer Society’s annual conference for cancer survivors and their families. The Living Well with Cancer conference offers information sessions and workshops covering topics including advances in cancer therapies, fatigue, sexuality and intimacy, exercise and diet, self confidence, and returning to work.
Irish Cancer Society chief executive Averil Power said:
“More than 150,000 people are now living with or beyond cancer in Ireland and there is a growing need to understand and recognise the life changing implications that a cancer diagnosis can have for both the patient and their loved ones.”
Up to 800 cancer patients, survivors and their supporters are expected to travel to the events from across Ireland. The conferences will take place at the Clayton Hotel, Ballybrit, Galway on September 15 and the Clayton Hotel, Silver Springs, Cork on September 22.
Attendance is free of charge.
