Taoiseach Officially Opens New Home Of Cork Arc Cancer Support In The City
The Taoiseach has officially opened the new home of Cork Arc Cancer Support in the city.
Micheál Martin cut the ribbon at Sarsfield House in Wilton in front of a large crowd of the charity’s supporters this afternoon.
Cork Arc offers a range of support services to people with cancer and their families and says it has seen a sharp increase in demand for their services, with 250 people contacting the charity for the first time last year- bringing the total number of service users to over 1,750.
Speaking to RedFM News at today’s launch, Taoiseach Micheál Martin hailed the work of Cork Arc:
“The therapies that are provided here, the emotional support that is provided here, and the practical help that’s provided here at Arc House to so many people – it’s fantastic. And also, I think, it reflects the journey we’ve had over the last 20 years in terms of the continuum of cancer care from prevention, to early detection, to treatment and then to the post-treatment phase”.
