Hi Ladies, just to tell you if you go the Irish Cancer Societys Facebook page, scroll down and it gives you an opportunity to give an input on the strengths and weaknesses of Cancer Services and Supports in Ireland. This is actually going to be sent to the Minister and his department. So just in case any of you wish to include anything in their proposal, you get opportunity to add your comments. Of course needless to say, I have done so yesterday. I have emphasized that OC is the forgotten Cancer and that earlier diagnosis is better prognosis. I have also pointed out while the survival rates in cancer has increased the number of staff if the centres of excellence has remained the same and that has to be addresses. Also I mentioned that the gynae liason nurse is not always available in the unit I attend. Getting on to supports, I suggested that the Supports such as Arc Ovacare and SOCK get no government funding for the excellent work they do and that this should be brought into play. So if any of you would like to go to Irish Cancer Societys page and scroll down and read the report and add in whatever you feel you would like to add, please do so
