Sam, 30

Sam was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma when he was 10. He formed a close bond with his Macmillan nurse, Moira, who he’s kept in regular touch with in the 20 years since his treatment. In addition to working for Macmillan, that experience inspired him to take to his bike in 2014, completing a unique round-the-world trip that’s raised over £250,000.

Paul, 63

Paul, a retired science teacher, was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012. He struggled with the side effects of hormone therapy but was pointed toward the information and support he needed at Macmillan’s local support centre. At the centre, Paul learnt that there was also emotional support available for his wife, Angela. She was assigned a nurse to whom she could speak as often as she needed.
