New Cancer Support Group Launches in Bolton

Are you affected by cancer? Would you like to come and join us at our monthly sessions in Bolton and meet others to learn and share?

Being affected by cancer can leave you feeling shocked, upset and very isolated. There are so many questions to be answered and so many feelings to deal with.

The Bolton Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service has teamed up with Bolton NHS Foundation Trust to provide a monthly support group for people affected by cancer.

The group will meet on the fourth Wednesday of each month starting on 23rd January 2019. The sessions will be held from 5.30pm-7.30pm at the Education Centre, Royal Bolton Hospital, Minerva Road, Bolton, BL4 0JR.
