Night nursing care for the very ill patient nearing end of life at home is an invaluable service. So many families are reassured by the knowledge that their loved one is well cared for and comfortable.
Laura Halwax, Irish Cancer Society Night Nurse
"The support the Irish Cancer Society showed my Mam and our family in the final weeks of her illness was so appreciated. It allowed us to have one last wonderful Christmas with Mam at home. She was so happy in her last couple of weeks, in her own home, that it was almost hard to believe her illness was so serious. A very tough illness incredibly had a beautiful ending. Our family often talk of your nurses and how special they really are."
