How your money helps - Maggie's Centres

How your money helps

One in two people will develop cancer in their lifetime, so the need for cancer support has never been greater. We want our centres to be there to support as many of these people, and their families, as possible and you're helping us do that.

Maggie's helped us through our darkest days

Cancer support

When Colton's wife Amanda died a year after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Colton was worried about how to help his teenage daughter Saffron as well as grieving himself.

Colton tells his story in this short film and shares how he turned to Maggie's for psychological support.

People with cancer need your support

A cancer diagnosis can turn life upside-down

The pandemic has created more challenges – from late diagnosis, delayed or cancelled treatments to feelings of loneliness and anxiety.

Our centres are built in the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals. The NHS provides medical treatment and with your support, we can continue to help people with cancer and their families manage the mental and emotional challenges of cancer.
