Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile support service is on its way to Weymouth and Portland.

Cancer information specialists will be on hand to answer questions and give support to anyone that needs it.

Elaine Perry, Macmillan Information and Support Specialist said “Whether you want to know more about the symptoms to look out for, need advice about managing the side effects of your treatment, or want to find local support for carers, come along and see us. We’d be happy to help and answer any questions you may have about cancer and how it is affecting your life.”

Local residents should look out for Macmillan’s trademark green bus and the charity encourages anyone with worries or concerns about cancer to visit the team for advice.

It will be visiting Portland (Tesco at Easton) on Thursday, November 14 from 10am-4pm and Weymouth (Asda) on Friday, November 15 from 10am-3pm.

If you are unable to visit the unit but have questions about cancer, visit or call Macmillan free on 0808 808 00 00 (7 days a week, 8am - 8pm). You can find out about Macmillan services near you on the website.
