Stories of hope after cancer diagnosis

Stories of hope after cancer diagnosis

Martin Fox, a Kilkenny taxi driver, is raising awareness of prostate cancer by sharing his story.

Through ‘Heroes of Hope: Stories of prostate cancer survival’ 15 men have shared the story of their diagnoses, treatment and survival for a disease which over 3,400 men are diagnosed with each year in Ireland.

The Marie Keating Foundation developed the exhibition of real-life stories and photographs with the support of Astellas Oncology to highlight that while being diagnosed with prostate cancer will change your life, there is life after prostate cancer.

The ‘Heroes of Hope: Stories of prostate cancer survival’ will be on display in Connolly Station and Houston Station in Dublin until mid-January 2017.

The exhibition will be then tour sporting and hospital venues nationwide throughout 2017. ‘Heroes of Hope: Stories of prostate cancer survival’ is also available to view online at www.mariekeating.ie/heroes-of-hope.
