Cancer carers

Do you care about carers? We are campaigning to make sure the almost 1.5 million people in the UK who look after a family member, friend or neighbour with cancer get the support they need.

Being diagnosed with cancer

Macmillan wants the 2.5 million people who are already living with cancer - and those who will receive a diagnosis in the future - to understand that with the right information and the right support from the point of diagnosis, life with cancer can still be life.
