Cancer Survivor, John McGarry - His Story

On World Cancer Day, with the theme ‘Not Beyond Us’, this is the survivors’ message: that cancer can be beaten successfully and a good life can follow.

John McGarry has walked the Camino in 2014 with Follow The Camino. As a cancer survivor, John came to us with great ambition to walk the Camino. We have guided him with the best itinerary with rest days and stages cut. He did training in Dublin and Howth before his Camino trip. In between two of John’s trips, he has discussed his experience with Umberto.

 

Marking World Cancer Day today, the Irish Cancer Society is trying to make sure that people know the early signs of cancer – and how to take action if you spot any of them. Click here to check the signs of cancer. The survival rate for all cancers in Ireland has increased from 45% in 1994-1999 to 60% in 2008-2011.

Follow the Camino organises walking and cycling holidays in Europe for adventure seekers from all over the world. Since 2006, we’ve offered a great range of manageable walks and cycles for all age groups, in particular on the famous Camino de Santiago. We were the first ever tour operator to operate the Camino de Santiago by creating manageable sections along the main routes to Santiago de Compostela. We are often copied but never equalled!

To find out which route might be best for you, contact our Camino Planners through the form on the top-right-hand side of the page to get your free customised Camino itinerary.
