A blood cancer support service to ease the suffering of those afflicted by the disease will go ahead with the help of a charity. 

The St Albans based Haematology Support Group will be meeting at the New Greens Social Club at 7pm on April 26.

Hosted by Leukaemia Care, the group will afford an opportunity for blood cancer sufferers and their loved ones to share experiences and support others. 

The group will be joined this month by Macmillan Move More coordinator, Alicja Polak to discuss the importance of staying active and regular exercise. 

Support group coordinator for Leukaemia Care, Nickey Bate, said: “Our support groups are a great opportunity for patients and their loved ones to meet others in a similar situation.

“The St Albans Haematology Support Group is a much-needed source of support for all those affected by blood cancer in the Hertfordshire area, and we’re especially pleased to welcome Macmillan Move More at this upcoming meeting.

“We’re looking forward to the ongoing development of the St Albans support group.”
