A cancer diagnosis profoundly changes a personís life. Many people feel alone, isolated and afraid. Some keep their fears to themselves in order not to cause further trauma to their families. Others simply have no one to share their fears with and many find it hard to get back to their old life when treatment is finished. Sometimes people find it difficult to ask for help and donít know where to turn.
A premises in Walkin Street (see below) has kindly been donated rent free by Modern Printers for 5 years. This building will house the 'Cois Nore' Cancer Support Centre. Proceeds from the Kells Kings Charity Cycle will go towards paying for the modification of this building, purchase of required equipment and financing the opening and running of the Centre. At the Cois Nore Cancer Support Centre all services will be provided free of charge. Therefore the Centre are depending on donations from the local community and group fundraising efforts, like the Kells Kings Charity Cycle, to assist them in providing this important support service.
