Group offers a supportive shoulder at times of real need

Editor's Viewpoint

When Jarlath Corrigan's 11-year-old son Cian died from a rare form of cancer six years ago not only did his world fall apart but he also feared that he would lose his family. He has spoken out candidly about the stress of that devastating loss and how he, his wife Rachael and their surviving three children have been supported by the Anam Cara bereavement group.

The members knew what the family were going through and were a particular support to the parents. By going public Jarlath is raising the profile of that group which is a shoulder to lean on at the worst moments of life. No one should have to grieve alone.
