Questions about cancer? We can help

Free, cancer advice and support is coming to Knowsley on 12 December. Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile service will be visiting the area, with cancer information specialists on hand to answer questions and provide information.

Macmillan research shows that four in five people with cancer are £570 a month worse off as a result of their diagnosis1. This is often due to being unable to work and having increased costs such as travel to hospital or increased fuel bills.
