A free cancer information and support service is coming direct to patients at the Lambeth Country Show this weekend (Saturday 21st – Sunday 22nd July).
Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile service will be manning a stall at the show on both days at Brockwell Park (Brockwell Park Row, Brixton, London SE24 9BJ) from 12pm – 8pm. Cancer Information Specialists will be on-hand to answer questions and provide information. The team encourages anyone with worries or concerns relating to cancer to stop by, whether you’re living with or beyond cancer, orcare for someone who is. Prostate Information Specialist, Suresh, will also be available to answer queries about prostate cancer and other types of cancer.
Martina McGill, Cancer Information Specialist at Macmillan, said: “Whether you want to know what symptoms to look out for, need information about managing the side effects of your treatment, or want to find local support for carers, come along and see us.”
“We also support people living with cancer 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.”
