MACMILLAN Cancer Support is hosting a drop-in session at Boots in Lakeside Shopping Centre on Saturday.

From 10am to 3pm, cancer information specialists from Macmillan will be on hand to provide personalised information to people affected by cancer.

Ciarán Devane, Chief Executive at Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “One in three of us will be diagnosed by cancer at some stage of our lives, and with two million people now living with a cancer diagnosis in the UK, most of us are affected in some way by the disease. “But talking honestly about cancer is hard.

“People can be scared of what it involves and are too often left without good information to help them through their cancer.

“Cancer information and support makes a real difference to a patient’s quality of life - helping to improve their physical and mental health, their financial situation and their ability to live with cancer. “By bringing Cancertalk Week to the high street via Boots UK, we’re providing an easily accessible community resource to reach people who need it.”
