About Macmillan Cancer Support
The Macmillan team 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.
When the time is right, you can do something to help. We can all be part of the team. We are Macmillan Cancer Support.
