Before the major effects of Covid -19 struck in March 2020, Greystones Cancer Support facilitated a number of Support Groups to assist people affected by cancer. These Support Groups were able to offer emotional and practical help to people with cancer and their families. That support was found to be especially important when cancer was first diagnosed.
The ability for people to meet up and talk to people who have had or who are experiencing the same issues with cancer was extremely important as a mechanism for helping people along. However, Covid-19 has put a stop to such meetings for now and our various groups, i.e., Carers Group, Men’s Groups and the Bereavement Group are put on hold until such time as the Covid-19 situation is dealt with and the Health and Safety Regulations allow for the re-commencement of meetings in general.
Greystones Cancer Support will continue to monitor the situation with the intention of resuming these important Support Groups when the time is opportune to do so. Hopefully, this will be sooner rather than later, and we really look forward to their return.
