A leading cancer charity has created a special place where people can remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones they have lost to cancer. Losing someone you love can leave you feeling lost. So, Macmillan Cancer Support have created a permanent place where friends and family can come together, share memories and even change lives. Local fundraising manager, Jessica Levin says “The website allows you to create a lasting legacy for your loved one – a legacy that will help Macmillan support more people with cancer and their families, if someone close to you dies from cancer, Macmillan are here for you. Call the support line on 0808 808 00 00 to help you cope with grief, give you all the practical information you need, and when you’re ready, offer ways to celebrate the life of your loved one.”
In Cambridgeshire alone, nearly £35,000 was donated in memory of loved ones in 2014. This is an amazing amount and could pay for the build costs of 10 Macmillan Information Points allowing hundreds of people to easily access Macmillan information resources. This is similar to the recently opened Macmillan Information Pod at Addenbrooke’s which offers support, advice and information to people affected by cancer. This could be anything from questions about cancer to advice on practical issues and information on financial support.
