MAC was founded in 1993 by a number of men with prostate or testicular cancer.  Two years later, through the good offices of Tom Hudson, then the Chief Executive of the Irish Cancer Society, MAC entered into a partnership with the  Society which has endured.

Some members of MAC have undertaken training provided by the Irish Cancer Society to prepare prostate and testicular cancer survivors to provide peer-to-peer support to newly diagnosed men and their families.   Peer-to-peer volunteers do not provide medical advice.  For this you should contact the ICS Helpline 1800 200 700 where you can speak to a trained cancer nurse.  If you want to talk to a man who has experienced prostate or testicular cancer the helpline will refer you to a trained MAC volunteer.    

MAC is also contactable directly by email:  mac.menagai[email protected] or on Twitter @CancerMac
or by post to 8 The Close, Mount Merrion, County Dublin.

MAC is a member of the European Prostate Cancer Coalition which is known as Europa Uomo www.europa-uomo.org  That organisation's Chairman is Tom Hudson who was Chairman of MAC until 2007.
