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 bills.

Details of the visits:-

On Tuesday, 16 January, they will be visiting Asda Huyton (L36 7TX) from 9am to 4pm.

On Wednesday, 17 January, they will be at New Mersey Retail Park, Speke Road, Speke (L24 8QB) from 9am to 4pm.

On Thursday, 18 January, they will be visiting Tesco Park Road, 215 Park Road, Toxteth (L9 4XF) from 9am to 4pm.

On Friday, 19 January, Catherine Street (opposite Asda), Birkenhead (CH41 6HW) from 9am to 5pm.

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.'
