There are still two days left to visit MacMillan Cancer Support’s information pod. Friday 19th and Saturday 20th January, information specialists are on hand to answer questions and provide information, 9am till 6pm.
The cancer information support specialists are very skilled in giving information on prevention and diagnosis, as well as the practical, emotional, physical and financial impact on the diagnosis.
There are also social care specialists who are able to provide a listening ear.
No appointment is neccessary, it’s completely free and confidential.
Helen Mitchell, an Information and Support Specialist from MacMillan Cancer Support, was a guest on Runway Radio’s Breakfast Show yesterday:
“The service that I belong to is a Mobile Information Support Service so we bring MacMillan to the people”.
They are there to answer any questions about cancer to members of the public. Whether you want to know what symptoms to look out for, need information about managing the side effects of cancer treatment, or want to find local support for carers.
On the show Helen, with Breakfast Presenter Steve, talked about the support and information available through MacMillan Cancer Support. They spoke about how our lifestyle and factors: whether we smoke or not, how much alcohol we consume, and how what we eat affects the likelihood of being diagnosed with a form of cancer.
Helen says “the biggest change that anyone can make and if they have a new years resolution is to stop smoking”.

MacMillan’s information pod is located in the County Mall Shopping Centre (Ground floor, opposite Thorntons)
