Speak­ers will ex­plore breast cancer aware­ness – signs and symp­toms; what sup­ports are avail­able and what to ex­pect; what to say and what hap­pens when some­one you know gets a di­ag­no­sis. They will also fo­cus on ovar­ian cancer – signs and symp­toms; di­ag­nos­ing and treat­ing ovar­ian cancer and cur­rent re­search.

An­other topic up for dis­cus­sion is life­style choices – your health, your choice: how four in 10 can­cers could be pre­vented if peo­ple make sim­ple changes to their every­day life.

Speak­ers will be from Trin­ity Col­lege Dublin, Cork ARC Cancer Sup­port House and the Marie Keat­ing Foun­da­tion
