Mobile cancer service visits Basingstoke

First published in News by , Senior Reporter

A MOBILE service run by Macmillan Cancer Support visited Basingstoke.

The mobile team of information and support specialists welcomed anyone on board with questions or concerns about cancer, for a confidential chat or to pick up information leaflets, without the need to make an appointment. The service is free. Amanda Cummins, Macmillan mobile cancer information and support specialist, said that more and more people are living with cancer as treatments improve.

She said: “They need more than medical help. They also need practical, emotional and financial support which the mobile team can provide.

“Cancer is the toughest fight many people will ever face.

“If you have any worries or questions about anything to do with cancer, whether it’s about yourself, a relative or friend, come and talk to our Macmillan information specialists face-to-face.”

If you have questions about cancer, call Macmillan for free on 0808 8080000 or log on to
