The people you help
Your fundraising will make a vital difference to the two million people living with cancer in the UK today.
Amy from Paisley
'I was diagnosed with a rare cancer when I was 18. Macmillan was there for me at the time I needed help most. Being able to keep up with friends might not seem like a big deal when you’re facing cancer but it really mattered to me.'
'I'm so grateful to Macmillan for their grant. I am delighted to be able to give something back to Macmillan by volunteering and helping support other people now who are going through similar experiences to me.'
Amy is taking part in the World's Biggest Coffee Morning this year, but instead of serving up coffee Amy is planning to serve cocktails.
Claire from West Lothian
'Macmillan has done a lot for my family. A Macmillan nurse was there for my mum when she was ill.'
'I know my mum could always talk to her even when she felt she couldn’t speak to the family about how she was feeling.'
'Since being diagnosed I’ve had my own Macmillan nurse who has been great. She is extremely knowledgeable and is always there to answer my questions. I want to raise money so Macmillan can help other people like it helped us.'
Tom from Kent
'I was just 22 when I was told I had cancer. The world stopped when they broke the news.'
'My mum and I were in shock and we both wept together but the Macmillan nurse gave us comfort, she explained that it was treatable and calmed our fears. She was there for me all through the treatment, answered all my questions, and even helped me get a disabled parking badge.'
