About Us

Following their mother Marie’s death from breast cancer in 1998, the Keating family promised to try to provide the people of Ireland with vital information, which could help them to prevent cancer or detect it at its earliest stages.

The Marie Keating Foundation is now a leading voice in cancer awareness and information for both men and women in Ireland. The Foundation’s mission is to make cancer less frightening by enlightening and it’s aim is to achieve a world free from the fear of cancer.

The Marie Keating Foundation provides information on all common cancers, including breast cancer, cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, lung cancer, skin cancer, prostate cancer, testicular cancer, bowel cancer and bladder cancer.

The Foundation receives very little 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 family’s promise of making cancer less frightening by enlightening a reality.
