Macmillan Cancer support service comes to Oldham

Date published: 28 November 2019

Free, cancer advice and support is coming to Oldham and Heywood.

Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile service will be visiting the area, with cancer information specialists on hand to answer questions and provide information.

The team encourages anyone with worries relating to cancer to stop by, whether you’re living with cancer, or care for someone who is. 

Cancer can impact all aspects of your life, not just your health. The team are highlighting issues around the financial impact of cancer.

Macmillan research shows that four in five people with cancer are £570 a month worse off as a result of their diagnosis.

This is often due to being unable to work and having increased costs such as travel to hospital or increased fuel bills. 

Details of the visit: 

Tuesday 3rd December, Harley St, Heywood OL10 1LT, 9am to 3pm

Thursday 5th December, Albion St, Oldham OL1 3BG, 10am to 5pm

Macmillan’s team of specialist advisers are available seven days a week, even over Christmas.
