Our Gardaí, Nurses and Fire fighters protect and save lives every day. In August this year, we were proud to be able to launch our very own life-saving campaign, Pink Power and Blue Power, a Prostate & Breast Health Assessment and Education Programme, to thousands of these frontline heroes.
The campaign will be rolled out to 6 more Group Life Plans by geographical area over the next year. 14,000 eligible members will be invited across the GRA, PNA, POA, SIPTU nurses & midwives, Fire Brigade, EPA and TII.
One campaign at a time, we are making a difference in the lives of our customers. Not only are thousands getting life-saving education, 28 Cornmarket customers have been diagnosed with cancer to date*.
Des Henry tells us how the campaign caught his prostate cancer.
Customers say it saved their life**:
“It saved my life as it picked up breast cancer early and I was treated. Without pink power my story would have been very different”
“They found something abnormal during the assessment. It’s early and hopefully caught in time”
“I required surgery so the campaign was of great benefit to me. Literally saved my life.”
“I availed of Blue Power and I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer. The cancer could have spread but, thankfully, everything is 100% now.”
