Personalities, creatives and breast cancer advocates gathered with a selection of self-created bespoke bras as part of the Marie Keating Foundation’s ‘Support Your Girls and Glam Up Your Bra’ campaign (in partnership with Roche).
The aim of the initiative is to get individuals and businesses to share their own bra creations on social media and to donate €4 by texting ‘MARIE’ to 50300 for breast cancer support and awareness services.
A new prostate cancer campaign has been launched today urging men to WATCH for any symptoms that could be related to your prostate health, TALK with family and friends about their prostate health and ACT by going to see their GP if they have any concerns and over 50 or when they are over 45 with a family history.
The Marie Keating Foundation’s ‘Stand Up for Your Prostate’ campaign is looking to empower Irish men to be more open and comfortable discussing their health.
…Six men, including broadcasters Tony O’Donoghue and Matt Cooper (whose campaign video is above), politician Senator Neale Richmond and rugby legend and journalist Tony Ward, who have all been affected by cancer in some way, are backing the campaign, encouraging men not to put their health on the long finger.
