When you get a cancer diagnosis you aren’t just dealing with the cancer. Unfortunately, there are so many other issues that need to be dealt with. Cancer itself is so difficult to deal with that when you pile the rest of these potential stressors and issues on top, it makes for a very stressful situation.

Here, at the Cancer Centre, we hope to help you through this very difficult time in your life. Our services, including transport for chemotherapy and radiotherapy, counselling, complementary therapies, pilgrimage funding and palliative aids for home use, are provided free of charge. Please feel free to drop into the Centre in Corry Lane in Kilkee for more information, or call us on 065-9060762. 
Remember, we are here to help.

From near and far they came, in memory of those gone before and for those currently on their respective journeys, the procession once again spearheaded by the inimitable Pats Hassett. The West Clare Tractor Run is many things, an annual event to raise monies for the continued provision of cancer care services for its inhabitants first and foremost, and an event that engenders great local pride and altruism. It is also a tribute to excellence, a reflection of marvellous community spirit and caring as demonstrated by Pats HassettMags KeaneMorrisseys Pub, Carrigaholt and everybody associated with the West Clare Tractor Run.

HERE COME THE GIRLS.............................
A BIG SHOUT-OUT TO Brigid Crawford and her daughter Róisín Ní Eithir, Lisdoonvarna, as they ready themselves to join over 30,000 females in Dublin on Sunday June 2nd in the 37th Annual VHI Women's Mini Marathon. Our ultra-glamorous mother and daughter duo are participating in the event to raise funds for the West Clare Mini Marathon Cancer Care Centre and we are very grateful to them. Brigid and Roisin will have sponsorship cards for people wishing to contribute to their fundraising efforts.

The 10K event, which commences at 2pm, will start in Fitzwilliam Square and finish in Baggot Street.
The Vhi Women's Mini Marathon is the largest all women's event of its kind in the world. The first Women’s Mini Marathon began in Dublin in 1983 with 9,000 entrants, it has grown in popularity and the event now hosts approximately 30,000 women on the June bank holiday weekend. Women from across the 32 counties of Ireland, U.K. and Europe take part each year to raise vital funds for their chosen charities and causes.

The Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon is a world class sporting event and is dedicated to helping women across Ireland to achieve their fitness goals. The mini-marathon has become an important part of Irish culture and a celebration for Irish women age 14 to 65 and over. The event caters for women who wish to walk or jog for fun while also catering for competitive runners.

Indeed, it is not only women who have benefited from the event, but the charities are also the big winners. In 2018 it is estimated that over €7.5 million was raised by the participants bringing the total since the race started in 1983 to over €217 million. All charities benefit as it is the women themselves who decide who they will support and many local causes gain vital revenue from the event.

 

O'CURRY'S GAA CLUB FUNDRAISER IN AID OF THE WEST CLARE CANCER CENTRE - SATURDAY 1st JUNE

Please support this worthy cause. 
All are welcome! 🏃🏻‍♂️🔰

 

THE ROUTE MAY HAVE CHANGED BUT THE GOAL REMAINS THE SAME!
The only constant in life is change and while the route for the Annual West Clare Mini Marathon has changed to the coast road walk in Kilkee, the goal of raising funds for the retention of cancer care services in West Clare remains the same, and the work to achieve that goal goes on.

 

YOU ALL PLAY SUCH A HUGE PART - WE HOPE YOU WILL AGAIN! 

Huge thanks to to everybody who took part in the 21st Annual West Clare Mini Marathon on Sunday 27th January last, for your goodwill, tireless efforts, and commitment and dedication to the retention of vital cancer care services for the people of West Clare - year in and year out - we could not do this without you.

We applaud and acknowledge our 'West Clare Cancer Centre family' for your unremitting, unrelenting, deep-rooted desire to keep this ship afloat in the midst of emigration, economic downturn and the everyday trials and tribulations that face us all.
What has been achieved over the past 21 years because of your inherent goodness is truly remarkable. The lifeblood of any organisation is it's footsoldiers, so we say 'thank you' to each and everyone of you, for your tireless efforts as we continue our campaign against cancer, together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

of the Provision of Cancer Care Services for the People of West Clare!

 The sun may have set on an amazing day and another marathon, but as we look back on the achievements of the group over the past twenty years; from the provision of funding for palliative care in Ennistymon General Hospital and in Regina House in Kilrush, to its daily support services such as transport for chemotherapy and radiotherapy appointments, counselling, complementary therapies, pilgrimage funding, and the provision of palliative aids for patients' home use - we realise that the fight continues and the work goes on.  Because it needs to.  By 2020, 1 in 2 of us will be affected by cancer.  A sobering thought and an unfortunate reality.

What has been achieved by the inhabitants of West Clare Communities uniting and working together, forging their own paths in achieving and retaining these vital services for West Clare is nothing short of extraordinary - so take a bow, each and everyone of you - the life-blood of the West Clare Mini Marathon, without whose generosity of spirit and tireless endeavours we could not exist.  The beating heart of any charity is its foot soldiers - the unsung heroes who take one dimensional ideals on paper and turn them into 3D living reality.

To each and everyone of you, thank you sincerely for your commitment and dedication to the West Clare Mini Marathon Cancer Care Centre.
