How your fundraising helps

Cancer is not going anywhere, and Macmillan Cancer Support is needed now more than ever. For more than 100 years we have been there for people living with cancer when they needed us most. Today is no exception. Whether it’s creating new services, adapting old ones or speaking up on their behalf, we are working tirelessly to ensure people with cancer get the vital support they need right now and ensuring it doesn’t become ‘The Forgotten C’. We rely almost entirely on public donations to provide this support, but we are facing a huge drop in income as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. We can’t do it alone. We need your support today.
