Macmillan Cancer Support’s Welsh information and support bus, Bronwen, will be visiting Ystrad Mynach on Friday, September 7.
Dubbed ‘Bronwen’, the bus comes with a team of Macmillan information and support specialists. The bus has two electronic information screens, a private room for sensitive conversations and two iPads to enable people to find the information they need on the spot.
Macmillan would like to encourage anyone living nearby or simply passing by who have questions about cancer to come and say hello.
On Friday, September 7, visitors can drop into the bus outside Tesco superstore on Market Street in Ystrad Mynach from 8am to 3pm.
Moray Hayman, Bronwen Team Lead Cancer Information and Support Specialist said: “We encourage anyone who has been affected by cancer to come and see us, whether they’re living with cancer, have been recently diagnosed, caring for someone with cancer or worried about a loved one.
“As well as answering questions on the day, we can signpost to other cancer services in the area and provide information on a range of issues, including financial advice and wellbeing.
“Even if you don’t have a specific question to ask, our friendly team are always available for a chat.”
