Sebastian Reilly (3), Kyra Downey (4) and Siofra O’Sullivan (5) helped mark the beginning of the Irish Cancer Society’s 50th year.

The Society has grown into Ireland’s biggest health charity now raising more than €20 million a year to provide care and information, carry out research and deliver services for people affected by cancer.

With the help of thousands of volunteers and supporters across Ireland, the Society strives to ensure that fewer people in Ireland get cancer and those that do get the best care, treatment, information and support.

The Society will officially launch the 50th year and its new five year strategy – “Towards a Future Without Cancer” on the 21st of January 2013.
