Last Wednesday, April 6th, saw two figures from the health and wellness industry visit Cara Cancer Support Centre for what can only be described as an inspirational evening.

The event was kicked off by Jason Hughes, former Monaghan county footballer, who spoke eloquently about how he overcame testicular cancer when diagnosed at the young age of 22.

Also on the night local nutritionist Dara Morgan advised the audience on the importance of a healthy diet at every stage of the illness.

Jason Hughes, who is actively involved in Castleblayney’s ‘Operation TransFAUGHmation’, spoke about the importance of keeping fit and leading an active life which helped him successfully beat the illness. This complimented Dara Morgan’s advice on combining a well balanced diet with regular exercise.
