Everyone has been affected by cancer in one way or another.

Today there are approximately 2.5million people living with cancer in the UK, but is there enough support available for the family and friends of the cancer patients?

One of the most well-known cancer support charity is Macmillan.

Moray Hayman, a Macmillan cancer and information support specialist says “We’re a service for everybody that affected by cancer – that can be the worried wells, the people that haven’t got cancer but are concerned about cancer for themselves or family members. We do also offer the carers or loved ones support.”

Lynne Spencer’s husband, Bob, was diagnosed with cancer in 2015.
