Muirkirk Cancer Support Group had its first meeting in June 2004 and was formed to help cancer patients and their main carer or supporter to meet with others in the same position.
The group can help put people in touch with other related groups such as Ayrshire Cancer Support, arrange for a couple of relaxing treatments such as reflexology, or just be there to listen. They can also pass on tips that have been picked up over the years.
Twice a year the group holds a dinner for those who have been helped in the past, when folk can chat in a relaxed atmosphere. For the last few years this has been held at St Thomas’s Hall, Muirkirk.
