Macmillan professionals are specialists in their area of cancer care.  They help people manage their symptoms and aim to make living with cancer easier.

People in North Wales already benefit from 52 Macmillan professionals, including Macmillan nurses, GP facilitator, benefits advisers and specialist social workers.

Macmillan is there for people with cancer, their families and friends to talk, listen and understand what they are going through.  Macmillan also helps support a network of self-help and support groups in North Wales.

Having cancer can bring extra costs – hospital parking and travelling expenses, extra heating, different clothes.  Macmillan can help – in 2007 we gave £167,883 to 464 people in North Walesto help with these costs.  Macmillan believes no one should be financially deprived as a result of their illness.

Having the right information about cancer at the right time is essential.  Our Macmillan cancer support specialists provide free information and emotional support for people living with cancer.
