Broadcaster Karen Koster today launched La Roche-Posay’s “Save Your Skin” campaign in partnership with the Irish Cancer Society. The broadcaster was joined by her sons Finn (2) and JJ (1) in a bid to raise awareness of skin cancer prevention through SunSmart behaviour.
The Irish Cancer Society is delighted to see the first round results and successes of Ireland’s national bowel cancer screening service. Three in four of the cancers caught by BowelScreen were at an early stage, which generally leads to better outcomes for the person with cancer.
As many as 500 fewer people would die from bowel cancer in Ireland each year if the public took action by making changes to their lifestyle and availing of free bowel cancer screening services available to them, a leading bowel cancer expert will tell the public tonight (11/04).
The Irish Cancer Society has welcomed the announcement that the standardised packaging of tobacco is due to come into force in September of this year, following the signing of the commencement order today.
