Why I decided to support Macmillan in the first instance
The main reason why I decided to support Macmillan Cancer Support is because in 2008 my lovely stepdad Jed was diagnosed with lung cancer. Macmillan were there every step of the way until he passed away in 2009 at the age of 52. Our Macmillan nurses helped us a great deal during this difficult time. They were a valued source of expert information, advice and support. Most importantly they enabled us to care for my stepdad in the comfort of our own home. I also lost my aunty, my granddad and a close friend to cancer within a very short period of time and Macmillan have been there to support them and their families. I believe that we are all affected by cancer and that we can all help.
