The Donegal Women's Centre is welcoming a visit by a Mobile Information Unit from the Marie Keating Foundation tomorrow, January 18th.
The mobile unit is a free and confidential service which seeks to raise awareness of all of the common cancers affecting men and women in Ireland and the healthy lifestyle choices to reduce the risk of cancer.
The Donegal Women’s Centre is located on the Port Road Letterkenny, opposite An Grianan Theatre. The mobile unit will be parked on the street for anyone passing by to visit privately between 11am and 3pm on Wednesday, 18th January.
If you have a private concern about cancer, there will be a specialist nurse available to talk to in the unit.
“We would encourage all men and women in Donegal to come and talk with Nurse Phil Keating about any issues or concerns you may have around cancer,” said Mary Maguire of the Donegal Women’s Centre.
The mobile information units are stocked with take-home information leaflets and packs on the various cancers. The community information nurse will talk to people who have a question about cancer, either for themselves or for someone else such as a family member or friend.
The Marie Keating Foundation’s work focuses on raising awareness of all of the common cancers affecting men and women in Ireland and the healthy lifestyle choices to reduce the risk of cancer.
The Marie Keating Foundation has three purpose-built mobile information units which travel around Ireland to bring our life-saving messages of prevention and early detection to as many people as possible, free of charge.
Each mobile information unit has interactive displays such as Smokerlyzer® test to measure the carbon monoxide levels in your lungs (for smokers), Fizz to Fat which shows how sugary beverages can turn into body fat, and Fat Chunk models realistically represent the look and feel of fat inside the body.
