Vistatec is delighted to support Holly Kennedy at Happy Magazine. Happy Magazine is an innovative support website for people affected by cancer in Ireland.
It publishes relevant positive and helpful content for anyone going through cancer or surviving after cancer (a patient or their friends/families) 7 days a week/365 days a year. A reader who follows Happy Magazine over time receives long-term encouragement, motivation, and support for making positive changes to help them become more happy and healthy in their life after a cancer diagnosis.
Daily content is managed by founder Holly Kennedy, a young mother-of-one and also a recent breast cancer survivor. Content is contributed by Holly as well as crowd-sourced from other cancer survivors, leading voices in the Irish health and wellness space, relevant organizations, charities, businesses, and interested parties. Happy Magazine also makes the best use of available online resources to support cancer patients who do not have the energy or desire to attend a local support center, sharing videos on cooking, yoga, home exercise routines, music therapy, meditations, podcasts and more.
HappyMagazine.ie is currently the only non-charity, non-medical dedicated cancer support resource in Ireland.
HappyMagazine.ie will launch its first print edition in December 2018. The launch issue will have a print run of 10,000 copies and be solely funded by relevant advertising revenue. The magazine will be distributed across the country to all cancer treatment centers. The magazine will also be the first dedicated cancer support magazine in Ireland.
