How it started

With a high rate of cancer claims among our customers, we wanted to do more than just provide cover. So back in 2012, we teamed up with some of Ireland's top medical experts to build Pink & Blue Power, a pioneering, life-saving assessment and education programme.

Pink & Blue Power provides vital life-saving education, and a once-off assessment, to women under age 50 and men between age 40 - 65. The aim of Pink & Blue Power is to promote awareness by providing information on the signs and symptoms of breast and prostate cancer, as well as guidance on self-breast examination.

The facts

  • 15% of women diagnosed with Breast Cancer are 20-40 years old*
  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer in Ireland with 1 in 9 women diagnosed during their life*
  • Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among Irish men**
  • 1 in 7 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer during their life**

*Breast Cancer Ireland, 2019. **Irish Cancer Society, 2019.

Important: While some participants are diagnosed with breast or prostate cancer through the programme, it is not a screening programme. The assessment provided only reflects a point in time. No test or exam will pick up every case of breast cancer or prostate cancer. Therefore, if you have signs and/or symptoms that are concerning for breast or prostate cancer, now or in the future, please consult with your own GP without delay. Please read the guide above before you book.
