"Whatever I can do to help raise awareness and anything to help many families going through a diagnosis of cancer"

Four years ago, Angela O'Connor's daughter Lucy was diagnosed with a rare cancer at the age of 8.

Thankfully, she is now doing really well and it's all down to work of the Irish Cancer Society and the support of her family and loved ones.

You know, as a parent of a child with cancer you have a totally different perspective

So when Today FM announced their BE A DANCER FOR CANCER idea for this year's Dare To Care campaign, Angela really wanted to get involved.

Angela works in St Ultan’s Primary School in Cherry Orchard, where they have over 100 staff members and they all are going to dance during their breaks in the staff room at 12pm and 12.30pm.

Everyone who dances will be donating and they’ll also be holding a raffle on the day.

Log on to todayfm.com.dance to get your tickets for our FREE dance event on Tuesday, April 30th.

Or else you can donate online at cancer.ie/dance or DONATE BY TEXT: Text DARE to 50300 to dontae €4
