Help young people to talk about cancer, fundraise to help millions, and teach and inspire people to make healthy choices for their future.
We are all affected by cancer. We’re here to help you give young people the information they need to understand it and the opportunity to discuss it.
At Macmillan we don’t want cancer to be the elephant in the (class)room. Yes, it’s a big subject but we think it should be an easy and natural one to talk about. That’s why we’ve produced our Talking About Cancer toolkit - to help you discuss it honestly and openly with your pupils aged 9-16 years old as part of your PSHE/PSE/PSD, citizenship or science lessons.
The pack contains everything you need to give young people the facts about cancer they need. We want to help them to make informed lifestyle choices and create a more sensitive and cancer-aware society.|
In the pack you’ll find:
