Macmillan Cancer Support’s information specialists at the Big Bite
Macmillan Cancer Support’s information and support specialists will be at Pontypridd’s Big Bite to answer your questions about cancer and highlight the support available.
Macmillan’s team of information and support experts will be at the Big Bite in Pontypridd’s Ynysangharad Park from 11am to 5pm on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 August offering advice and support to anybody wanting information about cancer and the treatments available locally.
Macmillan’s team of trained professionals with first-hand experience of cancer treatments and front-line support services are on hand to provide information and advice to anybody with questions about cancer.
Macmillan is encouraging anyone visiting the festival who has questions about cancer to come and say hello.
Moray Hayman, Bronwen Team Lead and Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Specialist says: “We encourage anyone who has questions about cancer to come and see us, whether they’re living with cancer, have been recently diagnosed, are caring for someone with cancer or are worried about somebody.
“As well as answering questions on the day, we can let visitors know about other cancer services locally and provide information on a range of matters, including the physical, financial and emotional support available.
“Even if you don’t have a specific question to ask, our friendly team are always available for a chat about whatever cancer throws your way.”
Richard Pugh, Head of Services for Macmillan in Wales, said: “At Macmillan, we know a cancer diagnosis can turn life upside down in just a moment and we aim to be right there with you.
“Funded by our brilliant supporters, our mobile information team travels around Wales to bring cancer information and advice to your community.
“Bronwen is smaller and lighter that most of our services, meaning we can reach even more people with cancer to offer our expert information and advice and to support people with cancer to live life as fully as they can.”
