Make a difference this Christmas by sending an eCard instead of a traditional Christmas Card.

By doing so, you will help us support families affected by Cancer in Ireland.



Thank you for helping us to make a difference this Christmas by sending an eCard.

By doing so, you have directly helped us support families affected by Cancer in Ireland.

With 1 in 3 people affected by Cancer in Ireland today, your support is needed more than ever.

Byron Hayes speaks about the sense of fear and isolation that a Cancer diagnosis can bring to a family. These feelings can be heightened at Christmas due to the emotion that this time of year brings.  Watch Byron’s video here to see how Purple House has helped him.

Thank you for your support!
