The Irish Cancer Society is asking the people of Kildare and other counties to have their say in how the charity can better help those affected by cancer.

Chief Executive Averil Power said the Irish Cancer Society is preparing an ambitious new five-year strategy. As part of this it is seeking the public's view on how it can help people with cancer and their families.

"To ensure we focus on the right things, we are asking people affected by cancer in Kilkenny to tell us how we can best help. We would love to hear from anyone is currently, or has previously, been impacted by cancer, whether as a patient or as a friend or family member of a patient.

“Tell us what we do well, what we could do better and what gaps in supports you think we should try to fill. By completing the survey you can help shape our priorities for the next five years and ensure we make the greatest possible difference for everyone affected by cancer. The survey will only take 10 minutes and all answers are confidential.

“The Irish Cancer Society is here to help you and your local community. We would hugely appreciate your input into how we can best do this in the future.
