Being hit with the news that you have cancer can be made even harder by feelings of isolation and loneliness. But you don't have to go through it alone. Meet some of the people we've been there for.
‘When Betty was really ill, we weren't sure how to handle things or what we should be saying to her. Our Macmillan nurse Tony pointed us in the right direction.’

‘I felt like I couldn’t turn to anyone. My family were in Italy, my brother was in Bermuda and I didn’t want to lay anything on my kids. But Pat has been there all the way.'

‘Macmillan is always there if you need them. And they supported my wife too. Without them, I would’ve fallen even further.’

'You don't feel like you're just doing something to raise money, you genuinely feel like you're part of a family. You're all there for one reason and the one reason is't cancer. The one reason is actually life. Relieving someone's pain in life.'

We believe that no one should face cancer alone. Please donate today| to help us be there for everyone that needs us.
Thousands of people diagnosed with cancer in the UK are having to face their journey without support. Help us make sure that no one has to.
One in four of the 1,700 people surveyed by us said they were lacking support during their cancer journey. We believe that this is wrong and must change.
If you have any questions about Macmillan we would love to hear from you| .
