Macmillan will be visiting Hatfield town centre to provide free support and information to cancer sufferers or those who have questions.

Free cancer information and support is coming to Hatfield on Tuesday, August 28, outside Boots in the town centre.

Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile service will be visiting the area, with 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.

Now that summer is here, the team will also be providing specialist advice and information about sun safety and skin cancer.

Wendy Marchant, a Macmillan information and support specialist, said: “Skin cancer, if caught early, is treatable and has one of the highest survival rates of all cancers. Being sun aware is key.

“Our advice is to avoid sun beds, wear a high SPF sun screen with a four-star rating or more so it will block out UVA as well as UVB rays, and cover up in the sun.”

For further information about Macmillan’s mobile information service, and planned visits, go to www.macmillan.org.uk/mobileinfo

If you are unable to visit the unit but have questions about cancer, visit www.macmillan.org.uk or call Macmillan free on 0808 808 00 00 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 8pm).
