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
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

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."
