I am familiar with the services provided to those affected by cancer through this organisation.  Indeed, I recently met with representatives of the organisation, together with representatives of the HSE Community Health Organisation for Laois/Offaly (CHO 8), to discuss their work, the funding provided through CHO 8 and their future plans.

The possibility of further funding through the Community Health Organisation will be considered in the context of the budget process for 2020.
