“I was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2014. I thought I could deal with the cancer myself, but for my husband Mark and my son Sean I decided to go to the Solas Cancer Support Centre. Solas now means so much to me and my family. It has been particularly hard on Sean but I feel that he has benefited from the children’s art psychotherapy. Sean loves the painting and drawing. The colours helped Sean with his feelings and he liked that his mam was getting support also”-Sineád $ Seán Breen
