Mo on money and cancer

Published: 07 March 2019

Mo was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2014. His cancer was inoperable and meant that he had to give up his job. The costs of living felt like a weight on his shoulders. Macmillan helped Mo to fill out forms to claim financial support and gave him a grant to cover heating costs.

In this video, Mo shares his experiences and talks about the financial challenges he faced and how Macmillan has supported him.
