Macmillan offer support for all kinds of things from all kinds of people
Today people are coming to us for support before, during and, increasingly after cancer.
Sometimes they want help working out how to tell children or other family members about cancer. People want to know more about treatment options, or coping with side effects. Many are looking for emotional support, during a very difficult time.
Concerns about how cancer might affect their finances is a particularly common reason for getting in touch with us. Our benefits advisers can help people understand what benefits they’re entitled should they have to stop work for a while to have treatment. And our financial guides can help people understand how their condition might impact their mortgage, insurance or pension.
We also help more people as they return to good health. People tell us they experience fatigue for some time after treatment, or low spirits as they try to come to terms with changes cancer can bring. Some people want to go back to work and need support on how to talk to their employer about taking it slowly at first.
Together we can help more people affected by cancer.
