Hairforce 1 to host drop-in event with MacMillan Cancer Support in Romford

Anderson Boyce, Proprietor of Hairforce 1 with a customer.

A barbershop in Romford is encouraging people to share their stories about cancer at a drop-in information event. 

Hairforce 1, in London Road, are giving people the chance to meet a representative from MacMillan Cancer Support to learn more about the illness. 

Residents will be able to discuss their struggles and ask a spokesperson any questions they might have. They will be able to talk about the signs of symptoms and welfare advice. 

“Cancer doesn’t discriminate so it is important to have an open and honest conversation about the illness,” said owner, Anderson Boyce. 

“It’s for the whole community but there is a stigma among men. It’s a bit taboo, it is not spoken about as much as it could be. Some men are not made aware of where the help and support is. Where they can go and who they can speak to.”

He hopes people will feel more comfortable talking about it in a friendly and open environment.

Robert Riley, Proprietor of Prestige Barbershop and customer at similar Macmillan event.

“Awareness events such as these bring Macmillan’s cancer experts right to the heart of our local communities, as not everyone has the time to visit the GP or they might have worries they don’t want to discuss with friends and family,” said Rajiv Bhattacharjee, Macmillan Engagement Lead for North East London.

“We also want to make people aware that a cancer diagnosis no longer means a death sentence and events like this can help dispel some myths and taboos around the disease.

“It is crucial to get people talking and ensure that everyone knows Macmillan is right there with them, so that no one struggles in silence.”

The event is happening between 1-3pm tomorrow, Saturday, 25 May.
