The Macmillan Cancer Support bus is coming to Aylesbury
The service offers free cancer information and support to those who need it most.
The team encourages anyone with worries relating to cancer to stop by, whether they’re living with cancer, or caring for someone who is.
Cancer can affect every part of your life, not just your health. The team are highlighting issues around the financial impact of cancer which can be particularly hard for people at the start of the year.
Macmillan’s research shows that 83% of people are, on average, £570 a month worse off because of a cancer diagnosis.
This is often due to being unable to work and having increased costs such as travel to hospital or increased fuel bills.
Tina Churchill, 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.
“This February 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.”
