CANCER - the very word evokes fear.
But organisers of a roadshow in Felixstowe put across positive message on how people can give themselves the best possible chance of avoiding the illness and how to cope should cancer strike.
The Anglia Action roadshow drove their message home with the help of street entertainers and fruit and vegetable jugglers.

The Clued up on Cancer road show offers an informal way of spreading some vitally important health message, "said a spokesman for Mid Anglia Cancer Network.
