Money and cancer
Four in five people with cancer are £570 a month worse off as a result of their diagnosis. We need to make money one less worry.
Macmillan campaigns for real change for people affected by cancer. Read more about some of our current campaigns and policy areas below:
If we are going to ensure every cancer patient gets the right care in the future, we need a workforce able to meet this challenge.
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.
Each year almost 120,000 people of working age are diagnosed with cancer. Whether you are an employee, carer, business or health professional we can provide support and information about work and cancer.
'I did whatever I could to make things easier for her.'
'Macmillan helped me access my pension.'
'Working helped me feel less isolated.'
'Keep doing things exactly as you have done.'
Read Imogen's blog about her experience as a Macmillan support line volunteer. She highlights the benefits of talking about cancer and looks at some of the different ways people can start talking.
