Cancer Research UK roadshow is booked for Belfast visit

By Claire Harrison

Cancer Research UK is bringing an awareness roadshow to Belfast to provide information on how to reduce the risk of the disease and the importance of early detection.

Since launching in 2006, in partnership with the Marie Keating Foundation, the Cancer Awareness Roadshow has seen over 400,000 visitors in over 200 cities and towns across the UK.

It aims to raise awareness of how people can reduce their risk of cancer and spot signs and symptoms at an early stage. It also provides support to help people make changes to their lifestyle.

Lyndy Wesley, senior cancer awareness nurse, said: "We hope to talk to members of the public – men and women – about how cancer can be prevented and detected.

"We offer visitors the opportunity to have a private conversation with our nurses and also invite local health workers onto the unit to inform people of health services in their area."

The roadshow will be at Belfast City Hall on August 22 and 23 and Belfast Mela on August 24 from 10am to 4pm. To find out more visit www.cancerawarenessroadshow.org.uk
