Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile information team will be offering free specialist advice and information about all aspects of a cancer diagnosis on Monday.

Between 9am and 4pm, the charity’s big green bus will be parked in front of Boots in Stevenage’s Town Square and will be open to all, with a wide range of free information for people to take away.

Wendy Marchant, cancer information specialist for the mobile team, said: “Whether you want to know what symptoms to look out for, need information about managing the side effects of your treatment, or want to find local support for carers, come along and see us.”

Sue Green, senior information development nurse at Macmillan, added: “Knowing what changes to look for and when to see your doctor could make a real difference.”
