Time to talk, learn about end of life issues as part of Dying Matters Awareness Week in Southport

CANCER information and support is coming to Southport, on Friday, 12 May 2017, courtesy of Macmillan Cancer Support's mobile service.  A team of cancer information specialists will be stopping off in Southport to answer questions, provide support and inform people about local cancer services. It's open to anyone, no matter what your concern; whether you're living with cancer or care for someone who is.

Dying Matters Awareness Week is taking place between the 8 May and 14 May 2017 and it is an opportunity to talk about dying, death and bereavement. While in Southport, the Macmillan mobile team are encouraging anyone affected by cancer to come and see them if they have questions or concerns. If you or a loved one has received a terminal cancer diagnosis, for example, the team can provide information on palliative and end of life care, advance care planning, local services, and bereavement support among many other topics.

Lucy Rogers, Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Specialist on board the mobile unit, says:- "Receiving a terminal cancer diagnosis is a very difficult thing to deal with, for family and friends as well as the patient. We want to make sure you have all the information and support you need during this distressing time. If you have questions or you just want to talk, come and see us; no appointments needed and anyone is welcome.  We're here for anyone affected by cancer, no matter what your worry on concern. We can provide information on a range of issues including different treatments, financial advice, exercise, getting back to work, or what local services might be on offer for you. You can even just stop by for a chat."

The bus will be located from 9.30am to 3.30pm, on Friday, 12 May 2017, on Southport, Chapel Street, Merseyside, PR8 1AR.

Further information about Macmillan's mobile information service, and planned visits, can be found online or by calling Macmillan free on:- 0808 808 00 00 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 8pm).
