How You’re Helping

Whether you're shaving your hair or donating to a brave shaver, your support means Macmillan can be there for even more people from the moment of their cancer diagnosis. Thanks to you we’ll be able to give them practical, emotional and genuinely personal support through cancer, from help with money worries to being there when they need to talk.

£76 could provide vital support and guidance to 200 people living with cancer from our Macmillan cancer guide. It helps people understand more about cancer, its treatment and the help we provide.

£114 could fund a Macmillan social care worker for one day, ensuring that patients, family members and carers receive all the help they need to manage the social problems of living with cancer.

£410 could help run a large Macmillan information and support centre for a day, ensuring people living with cancer can receive face-to face support and advice.

£1,034 could fund a Macmillan nurse for a week, providing essential medical, practical and emotional support to people living with cancer and their families when they need it most.
