It's Macmillan's centenary year and we'll be celebrating this with special events throughout the year.
In 1911 Douglas Macmillan founded the Society for the Prevention and Relief of Cancer. In 1989, Macmillan published its first directory 'Help is there'. By 2011, our services have helped over a million people living with cancer in the UK.
2011 is more than just our centenary. It'll be a year of activities that celebrate how far we've come, the difference we've made and what the future holds. It's also the perfect opportunity to raise more money and increase awareness of who we are, what we do and how we can help.
We estimate that in the next twenty years the number of people living with cancer will double to four million, and many of those will live longer with their cancers than ever before.
The Biggest Thank You
To mark the centenary we've created a new website called The Biggest Thank You. It gives people affected by cancer a place to thank those who are special to them and who helped them during their cancer experience.
