We are now moving on to our 8th  Survive & Thrive programme in Ireland and this one is for a mixed group not focusing on any particular type of cancer but on survivors and those who support them in  your local community. Last year we held three altogether, in Dublin, Nenagh and Waterford and they were all very well evaluated.

Here are developments to date  on the Survive & Thrive Programme.(as you can see I have provisionally listed some speakers – this is work in progress)
