My father passed away in September from lung cancer and the help and support the Irish Cancer Society gave us, and continues to give us, is incredible. They do fantastic work and the fact that they have to close this programme is awful, it really is needed. I’m almost afraid to think of the impact it will have on families of cancer patients who are already struggling to get by and now have to pay for everything that comes with long, draining, cancer treatments, appointments, etc. It’s terrible that a fund is so badly needed in the first place, and now that it’s gone it will be a huge loss.
