Melanie said, “Cancer has had a huge effect on my life. My nana passed away from stomach cancer about 5 years ago. Being her only granddaughter I took it hard, we had a special relationship so I’m doing this to honour her. “My mother was diagnosed with skin cancer two years ago which was successfully treated, and I’ve been treated for stage 3 cancerous cells on my cervix. I can understand the fear the word cancer puts into you and the pain of losing a loved one from this horrific disease, so I’m taking on Colour Dash to support others affected and to remember Nana.”
The Irish Cancer Society relies almost entirely on public donations to fund lifesaving cancer research and free services to support people affected by cancer. With cancer incidence on the rise the Society is experiencing increased demand for its services so donations are crucial to ensure it can reach those in need.
