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.
"MY MACMILLAN GRANT WAS A GODSEND"
After talking to one of our Macmillan Support Line advisers about her unmanageable oil bill, Philomena received a £350 grant from Macmillan which meant she could heat her home though winter.
"THE CENTRE WAS UNBELIEVABLE AND FULL OF LOVELY PEOPLE"
Thom found his Macmillan information and support centre at Derriford Hospital to be a haven in between his chemotherapy sessions.
"GILL’S GIVEN ME STRENGTH AND COURAGE"
When Dave was told he had prostate cancer, his Macmillan nurse, Gill, was there to support him – right from the moment he was diagnosed, for as long as he needed her.
£10 spent on the Macmillan Support Line could lead to us helping someone claim £409 in benefits.
£185 could pay for a Macmillan Grant that helps a person living with cancer heat their home.
£360 could help run a large Macmillan information and support centre for a day.
£1,020 could fund a Macmillan nurse for a week, helping people living with cancer and their families.
