How it helps

Holding an epic gaming marathon for Macmillan Cancer Support is crazy fun, for sure. But it will change lives too – by raising vital funds to help us be right there for people living with cancer, whatever it throws their way.

Game Heroes change lives

At Macmillan we know cancer can throw life into chaos. It can mess with everything. Body. Emotions. Job. Finances. That’s why we’re right here, helping people living with cancer to regain a sense of control. Every penny raised by Game Heroes like you will help more people like Saima to live life as fully as they can.


I actually struggled with the hysterectomy more than the cancer diagnosis. I would say, hand on heart, that Macmillan were with me from diagnosis to all clear, and beyond.
