Men's Cancer Alliance

Cause Description

We are a national alliance of cancer charities who believe that 'No Man' should die un-necessarily to cancer and that a culture of embarrasment prevents them taking action.

Overview

Growing out of the Blue September Campaign when three Irish Charities based across the country came together to encourage more men to "face up to cancer", the Men's Cancer Alliance was formed to provide a more effective body working to reduce the high levels of deaths to cancer amongst Irish men and create greater awareness leading to the potential for earlier diagnoses and higher long term survival rates.

On realising our common goals in relation to men's health, working as one national organisation, rather than three, we could ensure better efficiencies and a stronger voice. This works both for the services we offer and for our campaigns. Working as an "Alliance" ensures a lack of duplication and lowers fundraising costs.

We plan to raise awareness and to educate men about the signs and symptoms of cancer and to encourage more men to take better care of their health to reduce their risks of developing cancer.

Through fund raising initiatives we will provide patients with high quality services and equipment with access to expert doctors and nurses who can diagnose and treat cancer patients quickly and accurately in our affiliated cancer treatment centres, providing compassionate care to men diagnosed with cancer at every stage of their cancer journey.
