In these unprecedented times, we are all facing daily, unscripted challenges in our lives, with no immediate certainty.

PLEASE BE ASSURED – WE ARE HERE FOR YOU IF YOU NEED US……………

WE ARE LIVING IN CHALLENGING TIMES, that is for certain. With the suspension of life as we know it and no clear road map out of lockdown, fear and anxiety can escalate and we find ourselves adrift, cut off from family and friends with no one to share our burdens. How do I cope with my cancer diagnosis? How do I get to hospital to have my treatment? How do I cope with my mounting fears? THE WEST CLARE CANCER CENTRE IS HERE TO SUPPORT YOU. Please be reassured of that. Though our office door may be closed, we are still here and our services are still available, whenever you may need them.

JOHNNY DORIS – APRIL KEANE FAMILY CHALLENGE!

THE HUMAN SPIRIT IS STRONGER THAN ANYTHING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO IT – Johnny Doris is the emobodiment of this sentiment………………

May we express our sincere gratitude to Johnny Doris, Portarlington, Co. Laois, to Mags Keane, Carrigaholt, and the extended Keane family for the marvellous sum of €2,106.00 raised for the West Clare Cancer Centre on foot of Johnny’s ‘Keane Family Challenge’ which ran for the month of April. These people – the cultivators of altruism and the embodiment of compassion, covered a combined distance of over 5,000 kilometres, the approximate distance from Carrigaholt to San Fransisco, in their bid to raise funds for the West Clare Cancer Centre here in Kilkee. Phenomenal is too insufficient a word to describe their achievement – thanks is too small a word to proffer. Heroes all – we salute you!
