Dear Editor,

Christmas is a time for making people feel special, to #ReachOut to those you know and those you don’t and to those who are especially vulnerable living with cancer.

It’s an opportunity to think about what’s important; in a year when being in each other’s company has been so difficult, isn’t time together during a national holiday the greatest gift of all?

We’ve all had to adapt this year, as the global pandemic has taken its toll, creating adversity, generating fear and isolation.

Forcing us to alter our natural instincts to come together, alter our behaviour and live with an invisible enemy.

For those of us living with cancer this has brought further anxiety and trepidation to an already challenging present and uncertain future.

This Christmas Macmillan Cancer Support wants you to take a step back and focus on what’s special to all of us, something that comes more naturally at Christmas than at any other time of year.

Reach out to all the members of the community who live with cancer, show them that they matter and they’re on your mind.

It really is the simple things that are the most important.

Being in someone’s company is an opportunity to #ReachOut and show you care and that they matter to you.

Making someone feel better in this way is the best possible gift at Christmas whether it’s a kind thought and action, a smile through a screen or a friendly voice on the telephone; we’re all in need of a little extra and Christmas is the perfect time.

Cancer doesn’t stop at Christmas and neither does Macmillan Cancer Support.

Without your donations we simply cannot support the growing number of people who need us no matter what time of year it is.

The Macmillan Support Line can help with clinical, practical and financial information for all those affected by and living with cancer.

Please call us on 0808 808 00 00 (7 days a week, 8am-8pm).

Donate today to help us this Christmas: or visit our online shop buy a Christmas card and remind someone they’re in your thoughts, reach out:

Yours Sincerely,

Jane Melvin,
Head of Partnerships North and North West
Macmillan Cancer Support
