Macmillan Cancer Support team is coming
to Liverpool and Birkenhead
FREE cancer advice and support is
coming to Liverpool 16 January to 18 January 2018, and making a return visit to Birkenhead on
19 January 2018. Macmillan Cancer Support's mobile service will be visiting the area,
with cancer information specialists 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 four in five people with cancer are ₤570 a month
worse off as a result of their diagnosis1. This is often due to being unable to
work and having increased costs such as travel to hospital or increased fuel

Debbie Smith, a Macmillan Information and
Support Specialist on the unit, 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. On the dates mentioned above, we're 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.'
