What MACMILLAN does?
No one should face cancer alone. Right from the moment you’re diagnosed, through your treatment and beyond, we’re a constant source of support, giving you the energy and inspiration to help you take back control of your life, and feel more like yourself again.Macmillan’s own evidence has revealed the story of cancer is changing. In 2010 there were two million people living with cancer a diagnosis in the UK. In 2015 this number reached 2.5 million, and the figure is expected to reach four million by 2013.
The evidence that we produce helps us, and others, understand the needs, numbers and experiences of people affected by cancer. There are now 2.5 million people in the UK living with cancer. By 2030, it will be 4 million people, and we want to be there for them all. One in three of us will get cancer, and it will be one of the toughest things we’ll ever have to face. Our goal is to make sure no one faces cancer alone. We provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support, as well as campaigning for better cancer care. And because cancer affects more than just those facing it, we’re there for friends and family too. We are Macmillan.
