Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile service is stopping off at Exmouth on Wednesday August 27.

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 in the Strand from 10am to 4pm.

The charity is aiming to bring cancer information and support to local high streets and communities to help ensure no one has to face cancer alone.

Amanda Cummings, a Macmillan Information and Support Specialist on the unit, says, “Feeling isolated can have a huge impact on someone affected by cancer. It can lead to patients skipping meals or not eating properly due to a lack of support at home and can even mean patients opt out having treatment because they don’t have the support they need, for example not being able to get to appointments.

It is so important that everyone affected by cancer has access to the support and information they need.

“We are here to answer any question or concern related to cancer and we can also signpost to local Macmillan services and self-help and support groups in the community to help make sure no one faces cancer alone.”

Our five mobile information units travel around the UK visiting local communities, providing cancer information and advice on the ground.

Last year they helped around 60,000 people in over 500 locations across the UK.
