Support for you

Marie Keating Foundation

Following their mother Marie's 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".

Cancer Research Awareness Roadshow

The Cancer Awareness Roadshow is on the road to beating cancer in the area's where we're most needed.

The roadshow is made up of four teams of nurses who travel to the most deprived areas of the UK, speaking to the public about ways to reduce their risk of cancer. Since 2006, we've been able to explain the importance of early diagnosis and healthy lifestyle changed to more than 500,000 people through our Roadshow Units.
