Macmillan’s Ambitions

Being told ‘you have cancer’ can affect so much more than your health – it can also affect your family, your job, even your ability to pay the bills. But you’re still you. Macmillan get that. And, after over 100 years of helping people through cancer, we get what’s most important: that you’re treated as a person, not just a patient. We’re here to help you find your best way through from the moment of diagnosis, so you’re able to live life as fully as you can.

Life With Cancer

Life doesn’t stop just because you’ve been diagnosed with cancer. Seeing friends, supporting family, and finding a way to pay the bills are still important, even if you’re living with a terminal diagnosis.

You may have cancer, but you are still you, with a life to lead, friends to see, family who need you and people to love. Because life with cancer is still life, and we will help you live it.

Over the past few months our team at Macmillan HQ have been busy agreeing partnerships, confirming venues and calculating how many jelly babies we might need to get Team Macmillan across their finishing lines next year (it was a lot by the way!).

We’d love to see you on the start line and many of our events are filling fast so don’t miss out and apply for a place today.
