Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile bus returns to Kent!

mobile bus

Free cancer advice and support is coming to Kent between August 7 and 10th 2018 courtesy of Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile bus service.

The Macmillan bus “Dougie” has a team of cancer information specialists on board to answer questions from locals and provide information. The bus is open to anyone, and the team is encouraging 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 and the team is highlighting issues around the financial impact of cancer. If you’ve been affected by cancer, your finances might not be your first thought, but many people are faced with extra costs they hadn’t considered.

Macmillan research shows that 83 per cent of people are, on average, £570 a month worse off because of a cancer diagnosis. This is often due to being unable to work and having increased costs such as travel to hospital or increased fuel bills.
