A local business, UK & Ireland SAP User Group has raised a fantastic £1,137 for local people affected by cancer, at their Annual Conference – UKISUG Connect.
Every year 1,090 people will hear the devastating news they have cancer in the Stockton area, 6,300 people are living with and beyond Cancer. More than one in two of us will get cancer in our lifetime.
You may have cancer, but you are still you. Macmillan is here to help you get on with your life no matter what. We can give you the practical, emotional, and genuinely personal support you need to hold on to who you are and what’s important to you.
We can be there for you during treatment, help with work and money worries and we’ll always listen if you need to talk. We’ve helped millions of people through cancer and we can do the same for you. Life with cancer is still your life and we will help you live it. Locally we have the Cancer Centre based in North Tees Hospital with Macmillan professionals to provide the much needed support to cancer patients and their family and friends.
Liz Airey, Macmillan Fundraising Manager said: 'Sadly the number of people being diagnosed with cancer is increasing every year and that means Macmillan’s support for people living with cancer is in more demand than ever, we are delighted that SAP User Group supported us at their annual conference’.
