Someone you know has cancer; we may not see it but it is there…...

Supporting people on a longer-term cancer journey takes coordination, perseverance and commitment. Cois Nore identified that some families need a dedicated coordinated response from their community, with tailored long term emotional support on their cancer journey.

”Cois Nore was set up to provide cancer support in our community. I’m proud to support Cois Nore, and encourage you to help their ambition to provide a safe haven in Kilkenny for our family, friends and neighbours in their time of need.”

The growing need…

Cois Nore continues to evolve and grow to take on the challenges of increased numbers of people who want to use its services. Cois Nore is determined to meet that challenge whilst embracing best practice in community cancer care. 

There is no scope for compromising on quality if people can be afforded what they need to live well with cancer.  

Cois Nore needs your support to continue providing professional services free of charge.

The moment everything changes…..

Every single day, in two homes in county Kilkenny, a bomb goes off: that’s what it feels like to receive a cancer diagnosis. The astonishing reality is that one person from every household in county Kilkenny will develop cancer at some stage in their life.

Cois Nore focuses on patients living with cancer, which extends to their families and carers who may also be in need of support.

Cois Nore’s ambition is to operate a well resourced centre to provide quality support and care to families in the community in which they live.

Cancer changes everything forever……

A cancer diagnosis is much more than the physicality of the disease. Cois Nore understands the impacts on relationships, mental health, social and community interaction, spirituality and religion as well as economic and work. These issues are addressed through a range of  free services including Touch Therapies, Talk Therapies, Advice & Information, Children’s Services, Activities and Support Groups.
