£54 could help the welfare advisers on our Macmillan Support Line deal with a call or web enquiry, helping a person struggling to navigate the complex benefits system understand what they’re entitled to. They could provide vital support to someone who had to give up a job they really loved because they were no longer able to do it. Or they could help someone who’s struggling to pay the fares to and from hospital.

It’s really thanks to her that when I finally had to give up full-time work, I already had financial support in place to cushion the blow.'
Linda, diagnosed with breast cancer and kidney cancer
