The Macmillan Benefits Advice Service at Citizens Advice Taunton offers a free, confidential advice service to people living with cancer, their carers and relatives in Taunton Deane or receiving treatment at Musgrove Park Hospital.

If you or someone close to you has been diagnosed with cancer, money might not be one of the first things you think about. But having cancer can be expensive. Your income may go down and your expenses may go up.

If you are struggling to cope with the financial impact of cancer, remember there is help available.
