We need more Macmillan nurses to help support over two million people who are living with cancer in the UK today.
It costs £191 to fund one of our nurses for a day. If you are able to help, please give a gift| to provide more nursing care for people living with cancer.
In the UK today, over two million people are living with cancer. By 2030, that number will have grown to four million.
Currently, we have just over 3,300 Macmillan nurses. They helped 363,000 people in 2009. It’s a phenomenal figure, but it means that hundreds of thousands of people are going without vital support now, and a far greater number will go without support over the next two decades and beyond.
By giving a donation today, you can help to change this. Your money will help us train more Macmillan nurses who will begin to work in hospitals throughout the UK and start to improve the lives of people affected by cancer.
Our nurses are specially trained to support people from the time they hear they have cancer, during their treatment, and until they no longer need help.
They also provide invaluable support to the family, friends and carers of people diagnosed with cancer, helping them to understand the illness and what may happen over the coming weeks and months.
The vital support Macmillan nurses provide includes:
