We are a source of support helping with all things that people affected by cancer want and need in and around the Scunthorpe area. Its not only patients who live with cancer so we help carers, families and communities.We guide people through the system, supporting them every step of the way. We fund nurses and other specialist health care professionals and build cancer care centres in the local area. Here at Scunthorpe Macmillan we give so much more than just medical help.
People need practical support at home so we provide anything from some precious time off for a carer to a lift to the hospital. People need emotional support so we listen, advise and share information through our cancer line, website, support groups and trained professionals. People need financial help to cope with extra costs cancer can bring so we give benefits advice and grants for anything from heating bills to travel costs. Together we listen, we learn and we can to help people live with cancer.
