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:
Cancer can impact on everything from work, family, relationships and overall wellbeing. But life with cancer is still a life, and Macmillan can help you live it.
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.
'It was a tough blow to deal with. Very tough.'
'You never imagine that you have to save for cancer.'
'Working helped me feel less isolated.'
'I am quite stubborn. I’m not going to lie down and give in to it.'
