Marie Keating Foundation
Following their mother Maries death from breast cancer in 1998, the Keating family promised to try to provide all women and their families with vital information which could help them to prevent cancer or detect it at its earliest stages. Their collective aim is "making cancer less frightening by enlightening."
The Marie Keating Foundation is now a leading voice in cancer awareness and information for both men and women in Ireland.
The Marie Keating Foundation provides information on all the key cancers, including breast cancer, cervical cancer, throat cancer, lung cancer, skin cancer, prostate cancer, testicular cancer and bowel cancer.
The Foundation does not receive any Government funding and all of our services are provided free of charge. Without the support of our wonderful fundraisers, volunteers and corporate supporters across Ireland, we simply could not continue to provide these vital services and make one familys promise of making cancer less frightening by enlightening a reality.
