Free cancer advice and support is coming to Ely next week.

Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile service will be visiting the city on Wednesday July 19, with cancer information specialists on hand to answer questions and provide information.

The Macmillan team encourages anyone with worries relating to cancer to stop by and is also offering specialist advice about sun safety and skin cancer. It won’t, however, be performing skin checks.

Wendy Marchant, a Macmillan information and support specialist, said: “Skin cancer, if caught early, is very treatable and actually has one of the highest survival rates of all cancers.

“Being sun aware is key. Our advice is to avoid sun beds, wear a high SPF sun screen with a four-star rating or more so it will block out UVA as well as UVB rays, and cover up in the sun.”

The team will be at the Market Place from 10am to 4pm.
