Information on Macmillan Cancer Support and why we want to help:
As many of us are affected by cancer these days with one in three either being affected directly or know someone who has been affected we support the important research that charities such as Macmillan cancer support strives everyday to improve the lives of people affected by cancer; they provide medical and financial support and will make sufferer’s lives as easy as they can.
Kay herself being diagnosed with cancer in 2006 and whose mother was viciously attacked and consequently died by the disease in 2008
Macmillian’s ambition is to improve the lives of everyone living with cancer, as more and more people are having to cope with this disease in their daily life.
Macmillan also offer emotional and practical support too, invaluable to those suffers.
It is also about supporting families and communities and bringing them together to become stronger physically and emotionally even after distressing deaths.
Macmillan guide their patients every step of the way and fund nurses and health care professionals and cancer care centres.
Macmillan understands that people need support at home, so they provide carers and also for emotional support they have cancer support specialists to listen to.
Macmillan also give financial benefit advice for all the extra costs from travelling to the heating bills.
