A mobile cancer support service will be visiting Dagenham from today.

Macmillan Cancer Support will be setting up in the Heathway Shopping Centre from until Sunday, February 11.

Specialists will be on hand to answer questions and provide advice to people either living with cancer or supporting a friend or relative who has it.

Support specialist Zeba Rashid 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

“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.”

The mobile service will be in the shopping centre between 9am and 6pm every day except the Sunday, when it will be there between 10am and 4pm.
