Macmillan Cancer Support's North West mobile service will be in Merseyside next week

FREE, cancer advice and support is coming to Merseyside, between Tuesday, 28 November and Thursday, 30 November 2017. Macmillan Cancer Support's mobile service will be visiting the area, with cancer information specialists; including:- a Welfare Rights expert on some of the dates, on hand to answer questions and provide information.

The team encourages anyone with worries relating to cancer to stop by, whether you're living with cancer, or care for someone who is.  Cancer can impact all aspects of your life, not just your health. The team are highlighting issues around the financial impact of cancer. If you've been affected by cancer, your finances might not be your first thought, but many people are faced with extra costs they hadn't considered. Macmillan research shows that 83% of people are, on average, ₤570 a month worse off because of a cancer diagnosis1. This is often due to being unable to work and having increased costs such as travel to Hospital or increased fuel bills.

Details of the visit:-

► Tuesday, 28 November 2017, Wallasey - Cherry Tree Shopping Centre (Pedestrianised entrance), Liscard Way, CH44 5TL, from 10am to 4pm.

► Wednesday, 29 November 2017, at Prescot; Eccleston Street, L34 5GA, from 10am to 4pm.

► Thursday, 30 November 2017, at Tuebrook - Tuebrook Car Boot, Dorset House, West Derby Road, L34 5GA, from 9.30am to 3.30pm.

Jo Trask, Macmillan Information and Support Specialist and Welfare Rights Experts, will be on board for both the Prescot and Tuebrook visits, to offer valuable advice and information about the welfare benefits and entitlements available to people affected by cancer, who are receiving treatment, and also to their dependents and carers.

Jo says:- "It's really important that people living with cancer are able to access the financial advice and support they are entitled to, so they can focus on what's most important; their health. We can help signpost people to Macmillan benefits advisers who can provide free, confidential advice. We'll be here to answer any questions about cancer. Whether you want to know what symptoms to look out for, need advice about managing the side effects of your treatment, or want to find local support for carers, come along and see us. We'd be happy to help."

If you are unable to visit the unit but have questions about cancer, visit Macmillan's website or call Macmillan free on:- 0808 808 00 00 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 8pm).  You can find out about Macmillan services near you by clicking on here.
