Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face. But you don't have to go through it alone. The Macmillan team is with you every step of the way.
We are the nurses and therapists helping you through treatment. The experts on the end of the phone. The advisers telling you which benefits you're entitled to. The volunteers giving you a hand with the everyday things. The campaigners improving cancer care.
The fundraisers who make it all possible.Together, we are Macmillan Cancer Support.
Macmillan's ambition is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer and to inspire millions of others to do the same. After all, more than one in three people will get cancer at some point in their lives. With treatments improving and the population ageing, more people are living with the illness than ever before – two million and counting. Reaching and supporting all of them will be a challenge, but we know our team can do it.
We will work tirelessly to make sure every single person who needs it gets support from our nurses and therapists. To make sure they all receive help with money worries from our advisers. To get to the point where everyone with cancer knows know they can turn to us for a chat with someone who understands. To give people practical support with the everyday things. And to make sure they have access to expert cancer information they can trust.
How will we get there? Well, we're a big team, but we need to get even bigger. And that's where you come in. We need you to join our growing green army and help make sure no one has to go through cancer alone.
There are loads of different ways you can get involved and help us achieve our goal. You can give money or remember us in your will. You can raise money – there are oodles of ways to do it, so you're sure to find the right one for you. You could help someone in your community, share your cancer experience online or campaign for change. Or you could simply tap into your networks to spread our message.
