The Marie Keating Foundation Schools Cancer Awareness Programme aims to inform secondary school students – 1st year to 6th year, and adult learners on how to reduce their risk of cancer and how to spot the signs and symptoms early.

The programme makes cancer ‘less frightening by enlightening,’ by engaging students with age-appropriate, interactive, and informative material.
