Financial cancer support

Our advisers help with money and work matters, and on benefits and grants. Discover how we helped Saima.

Saima, aged 29, was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2018. She is self-employed and was hit by the financial impact of cancer when she couldn’t work. Macmillan helped her navigate the complex benefits system and gave her a grant to pay for the life adjustments she’s had to make, like buying a new wardrobe and new bedding.

Here's how we can support you financially:
