As Wicklow prepares to hold its 11th Annual East Coast FM,  County Wide Coffee morning this coming Friday, to raise funds for cancer support services and the Wicklow hospice, it’s being claimed that the number of people diagnosed with cancer in Ireland could double by 2045

That's the main finding from the latest National Cancer Registry report released today.

For all cancers combined, excluding non-melanoma skin cancer, it's predicted there'll be a 111% increase for men and an 80% rise for women, representing a doubling of numbers overall to 43,000.
