No one should face cancer alone
Cancer is the toughest fight most of us ever face. And despite the fact that it will affect nearly all of us in one way or another, it can still feel like the loneliest place.
Almost 1,000 people hear the news that they have cancer every day but at the moment we cannot be there for everyone.
In the last year over 338,000 more people have been diagnosed with cancer in the UK and a quarter of them will have no support from family and friends. Isolation and loneliness remain a major issue for many people coping with cancer.
We’re determined to make sure that people living with cancer and their loved ones get the support they need. But we can’t do it without people like you. 98% of our income comes from the public; and right now we can't reach everyone who needs us. By taking part in a Macmillan fundraising event or giving a £3 monthly gift you can help fund our vital services.
Whether you’re a family member, a friend, neighbour, or a complete stranger you can help make cancer a less lonely place. Reaching out to someone you know facing cancer can make the world of difference. Here are just a few of the many ways you can help:
offering to do the shopping,
driving someone to hospital,
popping round for a cup of tea and a chat,
joining our online community to support others.
