Free, cancer information and support is coming to Goole, Friday 18 May.
Macmillan Cancer Support’s Mobile Information and Support Service will be visiting the area, with cancer information specialists on hand to answer any questions. The team encourages anyone with worries relating to cancer to stop by.
The visit has a Dying Matters theme, to coincide with the national awareness week.
Caroline Kipling, Mobile information and support service team leader, said: “Dying Matters week highlights the importance of talking about dying, death and bereavement. For our local visits, the mobile team will be working in partnership with Macmillan nurses and other Macmillan professionals from Hull and East Riding. We will also be supported by Dove House Hospice and End of Life Commissioning. We will be on hand to talk more about Dying Matters, as well as offering our usual range of cancer-related information.”
