Online Donations:

Everyday in Ireland, a family is coping with the news that their loved one has Cancer.  Thanks to your support, we endeavor to ensure that no family suffers in isolation or alone.

One in three people in Ireland will develop cancer during their lifetime.
In Ireland an average of 30,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed each year. The number is expected to rise to over 40,000 per year by 2020.
We want to be able to support them.

Your donation enables us to ensure that families receive much needed support during a very difficult period in their lives.

Every year, over 1,300 families visit Purple House for a wide range of support services like Counselling, art therapy, Children’s Camps, hospital transport, Programmes and Classes.

Your donation means that Purple House can keep skilled volunteers and Counsellors ready to see children, teenagers, and adults, who need vital practical and mental health support to deal with their Cancer diagnosis.

Purple House continues to help and support families long after their Cancer treatment has stopped, through our many post treatment and survivorship programmes.  These services ensure that children and young adults learn the skills to process their emotions as they grow into adulthood.

All of us here at Purple House really appreciate your support.  Thank you again for giving families a place to turn to for help…and a reason to hope.
A Monthly Gift to Purple House will help us to provide our vital Cancer Support Services throughout the year.

We have a big range of tee-shirts, bandanas, cycling jerseys, Purple Heart Pins, Christmas Cards & more!
