Macmillan Cancer Support claims sufferers face £640 monthly costs

Having cancer can cost sufferers £640 a month on average, according to research by Macmillan Cancer Support.

The charity calculated the figure by looking at increased expenses and loss of income suffered by people with the disease.

Graham Waring from Blaengarw was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2009.
