Here at Purple House Cancer Support, we are all too aware that Christmas can be an emotional and difficult time for those of us that have had a difficult year.

It is our experience that almost everyone finds Christmas an emotional time of year.

Veronica O’Leary Director of Services at Purple House Cancer Support shares some practical advice and tips for anyone affected by Cancer at Christmas time.



Thanks to your support, we have helped 184 families so far this year through the services provided in our Cancer Support Centre in Bray, Co. Wicklow and outreach support service in Dun Laoghaire Co. Dublin.

Christmas can be a very difficult time for anyone affected by Cancer and there are a number of ways in which you can support our work.
