The future of cancer care is under threat

We cannot support the growing number of people who need us without your help.

The future of cancer care is under threat. One in two people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime but hard-working NHS staff on the frontline are at breaking point. Tens of thousands of people are missing out on vital support.

With Macmillan and the NHS working side-by-side, this cancer care emergency means we are trying to meet the needs of more people than ever before, from our specialist cancer nurses to the comfort and information we offer through our Support Line.

We are funded almost entirely by generous public donations and we simply can’t support the growing number of people with cancer who need us without your help. Our biggest fear is not being there for yours. Make a donation today to help save our support..

£10 could make a real difference.

Every £10 we spend on our phone service could lead to our welfare rights advisers on our Macmillan Support Line helping people affected by cancer to claim £396 in benefits they are entitled to.

£19 could make a real difference.

It could pay for a Macmillan benefits adviser to work in a Citizens Advice Bureau for an hour, when they would advise people with cancer, their families and carers so they can access benefits and other kinds of financial support they are entitled to.

£29 could make a real difference.

It could pay for a Macmillan nurse for an hour, helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.

£52 could make such a difference.

£52 could help run a large Macmillan Information and Support Centre for 1 hour.

£60 could make a real difference.

£60 could pay for a Macmillan Grant that buys a good quality liquidiser for someone who can't eat solid food as a result of their cancer or treatment.
