Currently, there is also no other retailer that offers a range of cancer care products that combine the diversity, high-quality and affordability of Cancer Research UK’s range, and the website will be a ‘one-stop-shop’ to meet cancer patients’ needs, offering customers ease and simplicity.Julie Byard, Head of Trading, said:“The idea for this range came from our volunteer patient support groups. We all agreed that there were many good reasons for introducing it to our online offering: a key motivation was enabling people on a cancer journey to feel more ‘human’ again and to show that addressing their personal issues – even in small ways – can make a huge difference.“As well as making life a little easier for patients, the range was created to help loved ones and friends. It can be hard to know what to get somebody who is going through treatment, but this new range is specially designed to help. From travel bags for hospital visits to sensitive shampoo, each purchase has the added benefit of contributing to our life-saving work. The net profit goes back into funding the research of our scientists, who work tirelessly to on the prevention, diagnosis and treatments of all cancers.”Main image: Shoulder drain bag in mono flowerprint, £9.99.

Liverpool keeper Alisson out for ‘next few weeks’ says Klopp

first_imgAlisson Becker “We will see, but we can have obviously a lot of players on the bench there, which is good and I think Andy will be one of them.“He was in with us, he’s a brilliant character, a really nice lad and helped us a lot in the pre-season, and now we decided to work together with him.”Alisson’s loss for an extended period would be a big blow to the club he joined from Roma last year.But Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold, speaking after the Norwich game, insisted Adrian will prove a quality deputy for Alisson.“His experience is the main thing, he knows what he is doing. He’s played a load of games, so he knows what it is about,” Alexander-Arnold said.“Obviously when a keeper has to come off, it’s never too promising, so, yes, I think everyone needs to get their head around the fact that he probably will be our keeper for the next few weeks and if so, then we have to live with that, embrace that and I’m sure he will learn from us.“We will be able to make good connections with him and I think a lot of the lads have made bonds with him already because he’s such a good lad off the pitch.” London, United Kingdom | AFP | Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker was on Monday ruled out for “the next few weeks” by coach Jurgen Klopp after suffering a calf injury in their 4-1 win over Norwich.Brazil international Alisson limped off in the first half of Liverpool’s Premier League opener at Anfield on Friday.“Not too cool. It’s a calf injury which takes him obviously out for a while,” Klopp told Liverpool’s website.“I don’t want to make now an exact prognosis on when he will be back but it will not be Wednesday for sure, so now then we have to see. It takes a while, it takes a couple weeks for sure, and we have to see.“I saw already like ‘six weeks’ and stuff like this, but Ali was not a lot injured in his career so I would like to wait a little bit to see how he develops in that process now, but he is not in for the next few weeks.”Alisson, 26, was replaced by experienced Spaniard Adrian against Norwich. The former West Ham keeper, who joined on a free transfer last week, is likely to keep his place for Liverpool’s European Super Cup date with Chelsea in Istanbul on Wednesday.Third-choice Liverpool keeper Caoimhin Kelleher is not fully fit after a broken wrist, so the club are set to sign 35-year-old former Middlesbrough player Andy Lonergan on a free transfer.Lonergan was part of Liverpool’s pre-season tour as cover for their other keepers.Asked if Lonergan will be on the bench on Wednesday, Klopp said: “I think so. I didn’t speak to (goalkeeping coach) John Achterberg yet about that. We spoke a lot about the goalie situation apart from what we have to do on Wednesday!center_img Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
