Chief Executive OfficerI was motivated to volunteer with ARC in 2009 when I heard Dr Vincent Carroll, a member of ARC’s Board of Directors, talk about the wonderful centre that offers support, counselling and complementary therapies to people affected by cancer free of charge! Since day one, I have been humbled by the by the strength and motivation of our clients and inspired by the professionalism, dedication and compassion that my colleagues bring to work each day. I began formally working in ARC a few months later and never looked back. The numbers availing of our support services are rising exponentially and the number of services we offer is constantly expanding, so it is a very busy and very rewarding place to work as I see daily the impact of the services we provide, which are only possible because of the funds raised by our generous supporters.
