When you have cancer, you don’t just worry about what will happen to your body, you worry about what will happen to your life. At Macmillan, we know how a cancer diagnosis can affect everything and Macmillan Cancer Support are here to support you through it.

Macmillan Cancer Support is millions of supporters, professionals, volunteers, campaigners and people affected by cancer. Together they make sure there’s always someone here for you, to give you the support, energy and inspiration you need to help you feel like yourself again. No one should face cancer alone.
