Ireland to launch its first dedicated cancer support magazine

HappyMagazine.ie, an innovative support website for people affected by cancer in Ireland, is launching Ireland’s first dedicated cancer support magazine.

HappyMagazine.ie, Ireland’s only non-charity, non-medical dedicated cancer support resource, currently publishes relevant positive and helpful content for anyone going through cancer or surviving after cancer (a patient or their friends/families) online daily.

Since its inception in July 2017, Happy Magazine has gone from strength to strength and has now had over 50,000 views and now, this November, it will launch its first print edition.

As some of you may already know, I am excited (and a little nervous) to announce that it is my intention to publish a printed edition of Happy Magazine in December of this year. Writing it down seems to be as close as I can get right now to making it official, so here it is!

The launch issue will have a print run of 10,000 copies and be solely funded by relevant and responsible advertising revenue.

The magazine will be distributed across the country to all cancer treatment centres.

Founder and Editor Holly Kennedy says,

My cancer diagnosis has, without a doubt, changed me and changed my life. Last year, I was sitting at home wishing for a book, a magazine, a website – anything – to help me get through my treatment plan. I had so many questions that weren’t suitable for my doctor, most of them surrounding the idea of how to be happy while going through cancer. This website is that place I longed for at the start of my cancer journey. A place to help a person cope with this time in their life, packed with positivity, inspiration, support, tips, motivation and encouragement. The launch of our first print edition in November aims to provide this support to cancer patients in treatment centres right across the country
