Macmillan 360° video project
For many people like Jerry, featured in our latest video, undergoing treatment for head and neck cancer can be an especially difficult time. To help people feel more prepared, we worked with our corporate partner, Fujitsu, to create our first 360° video, which allows people to explore the treatment process.
The video creates an immersive experience, allowing people to explore an environment from the comfort of their own home, and all you need is a smart phone or computer*. This is the first time Macmillan has used this type of technology and you can watch this six-minute video of Jerry talking through his own experience.
*Please note, 360° videos are not supported on Internet Explorer – the video is best viewed in Google Chrome.
The Mobile Information and Support Service – taking cancer support to those who need it
The Mobile Information and Support Service (MISS) visits local communities and offers support and information about cancer. Last year, the service supported over 181,000 people across England, Scotland and Wales, and is a great way to provide access to hard-to-reach communities. Cancer specialists are on hand to talk to people in confidence and support their emotional, financial and practical needs.
Further information on when the mobile bus is coming to your community is available on our website. Please help us spread the word with the people you support.
