There are an estimated 2.5 million people in the UK today (2015) who have had a cancer diagnosis. This is an increase of almost half a million in the previous five years. Worryingly, around one in four people in the UK already face poor health or disability after treatment for cancer. The proportion of people living longer after cancer is increasing, and the number of people alive and more than 5 years from initial diagnosis is predicted to more than double between 2010 and 2030 to 2.7 million. By the end of 2016, more than a thousand people will be diagnosed with cancer everyday in the UK.
They have millions of supporters, professionals, volunteers and campaigners helping people affected by cancer. Macmillan make sure there’s always someone there for those unfortunate enough to develop cancer, to give them the support, energy and inspiration they need, helping those affected feel more like themselves again. Organisations such as Macmillan are essential in the battle against cancer, they support the lives of people who develop cancer and aid in the research to battle the cause.
we aim to make this collection of contemporary art accessible for everyone to get involved.
