Macmillan Cancer Support provides physical, emotional and financial support to help you live life as fully as you can.
The charity’s website has a wealth of information on different cancer types, treatments and tests. There is also lots of information on support available to cancer patients and their families, including help with practical arrangements, finances, work and emotions.
As well as their extensive website, which is home to an extensive online community where you can share experiences, ask questions and talk to people who understand what you are going through, their helpline is open seven days a week from 8am – 8pm on 0808 808 00 00.
You can also sign up to their free Telephone Buddies service, where you will receive a weekly call from a volunteer who understands what you are going through and will provide a listening ear as well as information about any support available to you. More information is available on the website or via the helpline.
