Currently, cancer services and health and social care systems struggle to meet the needs of the 3 million people living with cancer in the UK. Over the next decade, this situation will only get worse, because this number is set to rise to four million by 2030.
Macmillan Cancer Support stands shoulder to shoulder with the NHS to help fill the gap in local cancer services, 1 in 4 people receive Macmillan support at the point of diagnosis. Macmillan’s ambition is to be there for everyone from the point of diagnosis.
Macmillan doesn’t receive funding from the government, it relies on donations but Covid-19 has meant all face to face fundraising has been stopped, and Macmillan now faces a staggering 50% drop in income and yet they have seen an unprecedented surge in demand for their cancer services.
Macmillan Cancer Support needs your help now more than ever.
