With the numbers of people living with cancer now hitting 2.5 million, there remains an urgent need for more Macmillan services to support them. Almost 1,000 people hear the news that they have cancer every day.
In the last year over 338,000 more people have been diagnosed with cancer in the UK and a quarter of them (84,750) will have no support from family and friends. That’s an average of 928 people hearing the news that they have cancer every day.
By 2020, almost half of the population will get cancer at some point in their lives, but 38% of these people will not die from it. It’s great that people are living longer after a diagnosis, but Macmillan Cancer Support know how a cancer diagnosis can completely take over a person’s life. And the impact of cancer doesn’t suddenly stop when treatment is over. Even more people will be living with the long term effects of cancer and its treatment, and the demand for their vital services will grow.
Macmillan Cancer Support were established 103 years ago and have grown from £10 to an income of £189m in 2013, they spent £122m on cancer services in 2013 and reached 5.2 million people with support and services.
No matter who you are, where you live, or which cancer you have, you should get the best treatment, care and support. Macmillan Cancer Support’s ambition is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer and inspire millions of others to do the same.
At Macmillan, we rely on voluntary donations and fundraising for 98% of our income and we simply couldn’t continue the work that we do without our dedicated supporters like Anthony & Love My Gifts. We are hugely grateful for their ongoing support and look forward to working with them in the future.
