Ronan launches Mobile Cancer Units...

On Friday night after three years of fundraisers, press calls and waiting Ronan Keating finally reached the ambition closest to his hart. The launch of three mobile cancer awareness units in memory of his mother who died of the disease three years ago.

The units where launched throughout on Friday in Cork, Galway and Dublin by Ronan with the help of members of his family.

Speaking to ShowBizIreland.com about completing the dream in his late mother's memory Ronan explained how the day had brought back a lot of sad memories for himself and his family.. "Basically today after three years of raising money for the Marie Keating Foundation we put the three mobile units on the road. Which was our goal three years ago. It took a long time but we wanted to make it right and finally we are here, it's an amazing feeling. Itís an amazing sense of achievement. Itís a very emotional day. We are reliving memories from three years ago when we lost our mother. Itís been a tough day. We started in Cork this morning to launch the first unit then Galway and now Dublin tonight and itís been a mad day. But there is a sense of fulfilment."

"The units will be travelling around the country. They are all mobile units. They will be in supermarkets car parks and places like that. www.mariekeating.com is the website and people can go on line and find out where they are going and where they can find the units in their local area in the weeks to come. They can then go on board meet with a nurse, talk about cancer and we can organise an appointment with a cancer specialist if they need to find out more. Itís all about awareness. Itís about education. If cancer can be caught it can be cured. Thatís the message."
