Macmillan exist to help improve the lives of people living with cancer and their families and carers. 1 in 3 of us will get cancer and we are all affected. As treatments improve, more and more people are living with cancer in their daily lives. This means they need more than medical help, they also need practical, emotional and financial support. Macmillan has set an impressive ambition. The primary goal for 2010 is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer.
Orchid exists to save men’s lives from testicular, prostate and penile cancers through pioneering research and promoting awareness. Orchid plays a leading role in the fight against male cancer through research and awareness and by supporting patients
The Willow Foundation is the only charity of its kind providing special days for 16 to 40 year olds. To date the charity has organised and funded special days for young adults living with a wide range of serious conditions including: cancer, motor neurone disease, cystic fibrosis, Huntingdon’s, organ failure and multiple sclerosis (later stages).
Starlight Children’s Foundation brightens the lives of seriously and terminally ill children by granting their wishes and providing hospital entertainment to help take their minds off the pain, fear and isolation of their illness. When Starlight began in 1987, they helped just 4 children; this year, they will help over 500,000 children all over the UK.
