Free Cancer Support coming direct to patients in Balham

A free cancer information and support service is coming direct to patients in Balham today!

Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile service will be setting up in Sainsbury’s Car Park with cancer information specialists 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, or are a carer or loved one of someone who is.

Details of the visit:
Thursday 5th April
Sainsbury’s Car Park, 147-151 Balham High Rd, SW12 9AU
9am to 4pm

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.

“It’s also 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.

“And March is Ovarian Cancer and Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, so if you have any particular worries or concerns about either of these cancers, we’d be happy to answer your questions.”
