COMFORT for Chemo Kerry will host a free information evening— ‘Maintenance For Men’ — on Men’s Cancers on Tuesday, November 19 from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at The Rose Hotel.

One in three men get cancer every year . We need to take action and it is predicted that by taking action now by 2030 we can reduce the number of men dying from cancer by 25%,” said Mary Fitzgerald of Comfort for Chemo Kerry.

“The key is early detection and education. We need to educate men on making healthier lifestyle choices which will help reduce the risk of cancer. By taking a few simple steps such as maintaining a good diet and taking action early, men can improve their chances of living a happy and healthy life,” she added.
