Our not alone campaign

Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face – and nearly all of us will be affected in one way or another. But it can feel like you’re totally alone.  

From the physical effects of treatment to worries about the future, to missing your old life, or simply not having enough money to do the things you used to, cancer can be a very lonely place, and friends and family may not know what to say.

But you don’t have to make your way alone. Macmillan Cancer Support is here for you and those you love. 


Whatever you need – be it reliable information, medical care, help with money worries, emotional support or just a chat with someone who’s been there – we can help. Our support line, information and support centres, health professionals and Online Community are there to help take the loneliness away. 

We’re determined to make sure that everyone affected by cancer gets the support they need.  But we can’t do it on our own. We need your help – from spreading the word about our services to helping us provide outstanding care. 

If we are all Macmillan, we can make sure no one facing cancer walks alone.
