What is the Marie Keating Foundation.
Mobile Information Units Mobile Information Unit Service The Marie Keating Foundation has three purpose built Mobile Information Units which travel around the Eastern, Western and Southern regions of Ireland. There is a nurse on board who is available to provide cancer information to the general public free of charge in an informal and non-intrusive way. This is not a screening service.

Q. What can I expect from a Mobile Information Unit visit?
A. Our nurses give cancer information presentations on the Units as well as using practical awareness tools such as the smokerlyzer, tar in a jar and body fat scales to help to illustrate our messaging. The Units are stocked with take home information leaflets on Bowel, Lung, Mouth, Skin, Testicular, Prostate, Cervical, Ovarian and Breast cancer.
Our Nurses can talk to people on a one to one basis in a private area on board about any concerns that a person might have about cancer, either for themselves or for someone else (family member or friend).
