Speaking last February to mark World Cancer Day, Breast Cancer Ireland CEO, who had been undergoing treatment for an aggressive form of the disease said that cancer doesn’t stop for illness, including the pandemic.

“Cancer doesn’t stop just because there is another illness or virus happening,” said Emma Cassidy. “If you feel there is something abnormal in your body or something just doesn’t feel right, even in the current climate with the pandemic please go to your general practitioner and get checked because you will be seen.”
