Every two minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. In London alone, over 200,000 people are living with the disease, and this is forecast to double by 2030.
As the number of people living with cancer increases, so does the need for care and support. Luckily, that's where Maggie's comes in.
Built in the grounds of NHS hospitals across the UK, every Maggie's Centre provides practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer, as well as their families and friends. These places are special - more than a doctor's surgery, they offer a warm welcome and a calm, comforting space away from the chaos.
And as Maggie's launch their next mission to help more people than ever before, we wanted to share what makes them so special - and let you know what you can do to help.
