One in three of us will get cancer and it’s the toughest thing most of us will ever face. If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, or a loved one has, you’ll want a team of people in your corner supporting you every step of the way. Macmillan Cancer Support provide practical, medical and financial support and push for better cancer care. The number of people with cancer is growing every day. Macmillan Cancer Support want to reach and improve the lives of every one of those people.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition which affects around 100,000 people in the UK. Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20-40, but it can affect younger and older people too. Roughly three times as many women have MS as men. The MS Society is the UK’s leading MS charity. Since 1953, they’ve been funding research, giving grants, campaigning for change, providing information and support, investing in MS specialists and lending a listening ear to those who need it.
