We have a range of information booklets written specifically for those supporting a loved one through cancer. Order them here for free.

Do you care about carers? We are campaigning to make sure the 1.5 million people in the UK who look after a family member, friend or neighbour with cancer get the support they need.
Meet other people who understand what you’re going through. Find out about support groups, where to get information and how to get involved with Macmillan where you are.
Our Online Community is always open and full of people ready to support you.
