Being told you have cancer, or that your cancer has returned, can leave you feeling shocked, upset and very isolated. There are so many questions to be answered and so many feelings to deal with.
We'll be updating some of our local information search tools to create a better online experience. We apologise if you notice any problems in this section at this time and we'll be working hard in the background to fix any issues.
Macmillan supports over 900 independent cancer support groups and organisations across the UK, giving you an opportunity to talk to people who understand what you're going through.
