Letter From Macmillan Cancer Support.

Dear Friends

I am writing on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support to thank you for your kind donation of £1,025.57.

In the UK today, over 1.2 million people are living with a cancer diagnosis. Macmillan Cancer Support improves the lives of people affected by cancer. We are a source of support, providing practical, medical, emotional and financial support, not only for the patient, but also for their family.

We are a force for change, listening to people affected by cancer and working together for better cancer care. Without the support of people such as you, we would not be able to provide our many services, which include specialist nursing care, information centres, cancer care centres and grants to help with the unexpected costs of living with cancer.

Your support is much appreciated and will help change the lives of people affected by cancer.

Yours sincerely

Becky Blackburn

Administration Assistant - Durham and Wearside
