Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile service is stopping off at Eastbourne next month with a team of information and support specialists on board to offer free, confidential, advice and support to anyone with a concern or a question relating to cancer.
The visit to the town coincides with Ethnic Minority Cancer Awareness Month, aimed at making sure that no matter what your age, gender or ethnicity, everyone affected by cancer is entitled to the best possible support, advice and information.
Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile service is stopping off at Eastbourne on Thursday July 3 and the Eastbourne 999 show on Saturday and Sunday July 5 and 6.
Tracy Neill, a Macmillan Information and Support Specialist on the unit, said, “Cancer affects all communities so everyone should be aware of it. We understand that someone affected by cancer is not just a patient but an individual, and cancer care and support needs to be made more relevant to a diversity of people and their personal, spiritual and cultural beliefs.
“We know cancer has a big impact on anyone’s life and it’s vital that the right support is in place, physically, emotionally and financially. Macmillan provides a range of information in other languages and accessible formats and our helpline also has a translation service available. We can also signpost to local Macmillan services and self-help and support groups in your community. We are here to support anyone affected by cancer with any questions they may have to help make sure no one faces cancer alone.”
The unit will be outside Debenhams from 10am-4pm and 11am-5pm Saturday and Sunday at the Western Lawns,
