lamaSomething To Sing About-                                 a Global Network of cancer survivors


Something to Sing About (STSA), a network of choirs for cancer survivors, was launched in University Hospital Galway on Wednesday 14 November 2012. STSA is the brainchild of Dr Paul Donnellan, Consultant Medical Oncologist at Galway University Hospitals and Mayo General Hospital.

Something To Sing About at the Olivia Newton John Cancer and Wellness Centre is a pilot program and will take place every week in the Group room at the Wellness Centre, 2:30-3:30pm.
