Find out more about Macmillan in Hampshire
Every day 26 people in Hampshire hear the news they have cancer. The number of people living with cancer in Hampshire is set to double between 2010 and 2030. We need you to help us take action now so that local people living with and after cancer are not left feeling isolated and alone.
We are a source of support
We are a source of support, helping with all the things that people affected by cancer want and need. We provide practical, emotional and financial support. It is not only the people who are diagnosed who live with cancer, it is the carers, families and communities. We guide people through the system, supporting them every step of the way. We fund nurses and other specialist health care professionals and build cancer care centres.
We are a force for change
We are a force for change, listening to people affected by cancer and working together to improve cancer care. People who live with cancer are experts by experience. Together we use this knowledge to make a positive difference to the lives of people affected by cancer. This could be anything from getting a coffee machine installed in a waiting room, to bringing about changes in the law.
We fight discrimination – from challenging unfair travel costs and insurance policies to improving the national benefits system. Together we challenge the status quo, we push for change and we lead the way.
We are Macmillan Cancer Support
We believe we can all help. We can raise money, through marathons, coffee mornings, street collections, sponsored events. We can give our time – at cancer care centres, events, and fundraising groups. We can share experiences, online, in the media and with each other.
