It already accounts for 30% of all deaths across Ireland. Its prevention must be a high public health priority.“Cancer risk in women continues to rise, and lung cancer has now overtaken colorectal cancer to become the second most common major cancer in women.“The large, and growing, number of cancer survivors in our community will have major implications for cancer support services in the coming years.” Noelle Duddy, from Co-operating for Cancer care North West (CCCNW) in Donegal, added “This was a very welcome opportunity to visit the European Parliament. It was very insightful to discover other delegate’s thoughts and experiences of living with cancer and campaigning for increased awareness and services.”DONEGAL DELEGATES JOIN CANCER DELEGATION TO EU PARLIAMENT was last modified: March 3rd, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:cancerdonegalMEO Martina Andersonlast_img read more
