Macmillan highlighting the financial impact of cancer

Rugby Editorial 7th Feb, 2018   0

THE financial impact of cancer is being highlighted by Macmillan Cancer Support.

A team from the charity will be in Market Place between 9am and 4pm on Tuesday (February 13) to support those suffering with cancer or caring for those who are.

Cancer sufferers are on average £570 a month worse off because of their diagnosis. This is often due to being unable to work and having increased travel costs and fuel bills.

But specialists from Macmillan say they will have advice at hand to support those affected by the illness.

Spokeswoman Danielle Mellows said: “It’s really important that people living with cancer are able to access the financial advice and support they are entitled to, so they can focus on what’s most important: their health. We can help signpost people to Macmillan benefits advisers who can provide free, confidential advice.

“We’re here to answer any questions about cancer. Whether you want to know what 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.”
