Cancer can cause financial strain
Cancer can radically change the financial circumstances of those affected. People may lose their income if they have to give up work.
At the same time, they may face extra expenses: travel to and from hospital, expensive special dietary requirements, or increased heating bills if they can no longer cope with cold. Meanwhile, relatives may also need to give up work in order to care for someone with cancer.
This can mean cancer sufferers and their families struggling to get to grips with the benefits system at a time when they are most vulnerable.
Macmillan Cancer Support
Macmillan provide support, energy and inspiration to help people affected by cancer to feel more like themselves again. From help with money worries and advice about work, to just someone who’ll listen, we’re here.
