Macmillan’s cancer advice van visiting Valley Park this week

A cancer information and support service is coming direct to patients in Croydon this  Wednesday, August 1.

A Macmillan advice van will be at Valley Retail Park this Wednesday

Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile service will be visiting Valley Retail Park from 9am to 4pm with cancer information specialists on-hand to answer questions and provide information. The service is completely free of charge.

The team encourages anyone with worries or concerns relating to cancer to stop by, whether you’re living with or beyond cancer, or are a carer or loved one of someone who is.

Look out for the Macmillan van at Valley Retail Park, Daniell Way, Croydon, CR0 4YJ, off the Purley Way, near Ikea.

“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,” said Macmillan’s Martina McGill.

“It’s also 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.”
