A mobile service that offers advice and information on breast cancer is coming to March and Cambridge in June.
The Macmillan Cancer Support service is visiting Cambridge, March and Huntingdon between June 1-3. The visit follows the recent news that thousands of women across the UK may not have been invited for their final breast cancer screening appointment.
A team of cancer information specialists will be encouraging people in the area to share their worries or concerns about breast cancer. The mobile bus is open to anyone regardless of their situation - whether living with cancer, or caring for someone who is.
Macmillan support specialist Wendy Marchant said: “The team will be highlighting issues around the emotional impact of a misdiagnosis, signposting to local cancer services and talking about the sorts of symptoms to look out for.”
