When you or a loved one are diagnosed with cancer, everything can seem like a blur. It's normal to feel anxious and uncertain. ARC is here to help and support you and your loved ones through the emotional, physical and practical effects of cancer, and offers support and resources to help you manage them.

During treatment for cancer you may experience different challenges -physical, psychological or emotional. ARC’s Services can help you navigate these challenges, with emotional and psychological support through Counselling, Support Groups or our Peer Outreach services; building resilience and wellbeing through our weekly classes and courses; offering educational support and advice in the form of regular talks and workshops; and complimentary therapies to help manage side effects such as Acupuncture and Reflexology.

ARC also supports you when you are Post-Treatment. We offer survivorship programmes, courses, workshops and wellbeing activities to help set you back on the road to wellbeing and lifestyle recovery in the aftermath of cancer.

So call us today on 01 215 0250 or email info@arccancersupport.ie to get started.
