NOVEMBER is Lung Cancer Awareness month and the Macmillan mobile service is stopping off in Gosport to offer free information and support.
Macmillan Cancer Support wants to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms to look out for, as well as offering support to people affected by cancer.
The mobile service is coming to Gosport on Tuesday, November 18. No appointment is necessary and everyone is welcome. A team of information and support specialists will be on board to offer free, confidential, advice to anyone with a concern or a question relating to any aspect of cancer and its treatment.
Mary Mountford-Lister, a Macmillan Information and Support Specialist on the unit, said: ‘It is really important to be aware of the symptoms of lung cancer. As with all types of cancer, the earlier it is detected and the sooner it is treated the better the outcome is likely to be.
‘The team are here to help with any questions you may have, whether it’s about you, a relative or friend.’
