Welcome to the Marie Keating Foundation Talks Cancer Podcast
Talking about cancer isn’t easy but the Marie Keating Foundation’s mission is to ‘make cancer less frightening by enlightening’ and opening up conversations is a great way to do just that.
With our hosts Director of Nursing, Helen Forristal and Assistant Director of Nursing Bernie Carter, we will explore the ins and outs of some of Ireland’s most common cancers, how they impact our lives and how we can do our best to prevent them.
This series, with thanks to our friends at Novartis, we are Talking Melanoma.
Over the next eight episodes, our hosts, and guest-host Dermatology Nurse Specialist Selene Daly, will be talking to some great guests like Dr. Patrick Ormond and Dr Osama Salib about the realities of a skin cancer diagnosis and treatment, as well as hearing from patients that are living with and beyond melanoma. We will also hear about some of the supports in place in Ireland and how to cope with a melanoma diagnosis and possible side effects with psycho-oncologist Yvonne O’Meara. We will even have an exclusive interview with Dr Triona McCarthy from the NCCP to discuss how we can all do our part to help reduce our risk of melanoma in the future.
