Macmillan Cancer Support has joined forces with Brecon and Radnorshire AM Kirsty Williams to offer information and support relating to cancer at her regular advice surgeries.
Macmillan will offer free, confidential information and support relating to cancer during her advice surgeries at:
Ystradgynlais Library, Temperance Street Ystradgynlais on Friday 27 September from 10 – 11.30am
Liberal Democrat Office, Park Crescent, Llandrindod Wells on Friday 4 October at 12 – 1pm
Liberal Democrat Office, 4 Watergate, Brecon on Friday 11 October from 3.30 – 4.30pm
People can visit the surgery to receive information and support from Macmillan’s trained information and support specialist. No appointment is necessary, although appointments can be arranged in advance.
Ms Williams AM said, 'Fighting cancer is one the hardest challenges you can face in your life but it is not one you have to face alone. There are people like the highly trained professionals at Macmillan who are here to help you.
'If you have any questions, no matter how big or small, please come along to the surgery and we will do our very best to answer them.'
Susan Morris, General Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support in Wales, said, 'We would like to thank Kirsty for allowing Macmillan to offer information and support at her advice surgeries.
'More than 18,000 people receive a cancer diagnosis in Wales every year and each of these people requires support. They need more than medical help - they also need practical, emotional and financial support.
'Access to benefits advice can significantly reduce financial worries and help to alleviate anxiety and stress throughout people's cancer journey. If you have any worries or questions about cancer, whether it’s about yourself, a relative or friend, come and talk to us at the advice surgery.”
