Cois Nore was set up to provide cancer support in the community. Available evidence indicates that cancer patients who have their psychological and social needs addressed locally have better outcomes and quality of life. A cancer diagnosis brings its own fears and anxiety for the person diagnosed and all their family members. Cois Nore provides a safe space to talk and to relieve the mental and physical stress that is part of every cancer journey.
The National Cancer Control Programme (NCCP) has outlined key stakeholders (like Cois Nore) as essential care providers for those on a cancer journey.
