Story

First of all I'd like to say a BIG thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Sadly we've all been affected by cancer in some shape or form throughout our lives. We've lost loved ones along the way and more often than not things aren't always the same afterwards.

With the number of people developing cancer growing every day. It's important that we all reach out and try to improve the lives of every one of those people. However, we all need your help to do it!

For those who've been affected by cancer, whether it be a family member, close family friend, or even yourself personally. You know how much cancer affects not only the person with the disease but also their  those closest loved ones.

Macmillan are there as a source of support for all of these individuals; the mums, dads, brothers, or sisters, and even more importantly, the individual with cancer. With the help of Macmillan those families suffering have access to funded nurses and other specialist health care professionals who care for them twenty-four hours of the day, seven days a week.

However, Macmillan give so much more than just medical care. Families often need practical support at home, so Macmillan provide some precious time off for carers, lifts to and from hospitals and offering much needed emotional support by simply listening, advising and sharing much needed information. For those who know, cancer can place a huge financial burden on loved ones during a time when all they want to do is simply be with that person whose suffering. Macmillan offer benefit advice, and grants for anything from household bills to travel expenses.

  • Macmillan are the force for change, listening to those families affected by cancer, then working together to improve cancer care.
  • Macmillan are the nurses helping people through treatment.
  • Macmillan are the caring experts on the end of a phone when those families need them.
  • Macmillan are the campaigners pushing for better care for the people in your lives that mean to the most to you! Your Grandparents, Parents, Siblings, Cousins, Aunties or Uncles. The people you love and couldn't live without...

With the help of your donations, we both can make a huge difference to these peoples lives. Literally changing and potentially saving those people. Surely if it was the people that you love and hold dear to your heart you would want help from others? Please, please donate as much as you can. No matter how small, it will all help those who need it most.

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read what I have to say.

Have a lovely day!

Kind Ragards,

Chris
