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.

"We know that cancer is a frightening prospect for many people and we are always keen to promote greater understanding and an awareness of how people can help us to help them. 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.

The road show, which is organised by Mid Anglia Cancer Network with the help of Anglia Television and other organisations, was held on Saturday at the town's leisure centre.

Their aim was to challenge and reduce common misconceptions and fears about cancer by promoting a positive perception of what people can do to help themselves.
