  • Need


    More than one in three of us will get cancer. It’s the toughest fight most of us will ever face. And over the next 20 years, the number of people living with cancer in the UK is expected to double to four million. If Macmillan is to be there for each and every one of them, we’re going to need your help. We need you in our team.


    With your help, we’ll fund 300 days of Macmillan nursing. Our nurses support people affected by cancer every step of the way, giving them trusted information and advice to help with all sides of living with cancer. This Christmas, please give an extra special gift by donating what you can to make this vital work possible.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Macmillan aims to reach and improve the lives of everyone affected by cancer.


    » To do this, we fund services like our expert nurses, who provide information, support and advice every step of the way.

    What success will look like

    Success will be clear from the stories of all the families helped thanks to your support.

  • Impact


    By helping us fund 300 days of nursing, you’ll be having an impact on a lot of lives. Last year, more than 3,000 Macmillan nurses provided expert care and advice to 433,415 people affected by cancer. And with the ongoing support of people like you, we know we’ll eventually achieve our aim of being there for everyone who needs us.


    The Macmillan nurses you’re funding are already working in communities across the UK, supporting countless people affected by cancer. But we need the generosity of our amazing supporters to make this work possible.


    As a Macmillan supporter you will receive regular updates on our work and we will share with you how your donation has made a real difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    Macmillan is the UK’s leading cancer-care charity. Our nurses provide expert support every step of the way, from the moment someone’s diagnosed, to when they’re moving forward after treatment. This could come in many forms, such as helping with money worries, giving emotional support or answering questions about a diagnosis.
