Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the UK's best-loved and largest charities. It is most widely known for its Macmillan nurses, who give care and support to people living with cancer and their families. But it does so much more, providing a wide range of medical help, but also practical, emotional, and financial support to people whose lives have been turned upside down by cancer—something that one in three of us will get at some point in our lives. Macmillan has been at the heart of cancer care for a century. And until now no history has been written. This book is the heart-warming story of how one man's vision in Edwardian England has grown into a huge movement of people today, staff, supporters, volunteers, all with one aim—to improve the lives of people living with cancer. Former Deputy Chief Executive Paul Rossi traces the charity's origins and development alongside the history of cancer itself, and discovers how Macmillan continues to support people in an ever-changing cancer world.
