Local survivors of childhood and teen cancer are being urged to go along to an event in Carlow this evening.
CanCare4Living and the Boyne Research Institute are holding a meeting for survivors and their families in the Talbot Hotel to raise awareness of the late affects of treatment and to discuss long-term follow-up.
It’s taking place from 5.30-7.30pm.
Kyle Hawe was diagnosed as a child in 2006 and was given little over a year to live.
However he says he’s now planning for his wedding next year.
And he told KCLR support groups are so important.
