Last year, with the money you helped us raise, we supported an estimated 1.9 million people to live life as fully as they can.
In 2018, we made a difference to the lives of 1.9 million people – giving them in-depth, personal support. That’s 300,000 more people than in the previous year.
Thank you to our volunteers, supporters, partners, professionals and employees for all that you have done to give people with cancer the support they need, and for the difference we will make together in the coming year.
