Every year more than 7,500 people in Sussex are told they have cancer, yet many are left with little or no information or support at the time when they most need it. With your help we can make sure that they don’t have to go through it alone.
We need your help to raise £3.7million to build the Sussex Macmillan Cancer Support Centre. Designed by experts with input from people affected by cancer, the centre will provide information and support to people with cancer in a friendly and welcoming environment.
No one should face cancer alone
When you have cancer, you don’t just worry about what will happen to your body, you worry about what will happen to your life. At Macmillan, we know how a cancer diagnosis can affect everything and we’re here to support people affected by cancer throughout. We’ll help them make the choices they need to take back control, so they can start to feel like yourself again.
The Sussex Macmillan Cancer Support Centre will be a base for outreach services across Sussex and will offer:
cancer advice and information you can trust
support from our health and social care professionals
help with money worries
practical support to help you get on with life, such as complementary therapies, a hair and wig salon, a refreshment lounge and dietary advice
a chat with someone who understands, including a counselling service and self help and support groups.
There are lots of ways you can help us towards the £3.7million we need to build the centre. Visit How you can help to see how you can get involved in raising money for the appeal.
