We are Macmillan. Cancer Support
This is where you can find out about all the amazing things going on in the Online Community. It's where you'll find news about events and awareness months; ways to get involved with Macmillan and up-to-date campaigning news from Macmillan HQ.
Palliative care is treatment that is given not to cure cancer, but to
manage symptoms and improve quality of life.
Next Tuesday, from 12-1pm, we’ll be holding a live webchat with Pamela
Rose and Bill Carlin, specialist nurses from the Macmillan Support Line. If
you’d like to know more about what palliative care is, when it is given, and
what it entails, Pamela and Bill will be here to answer your questions.
To take part in the chat, just join
us in the chatroom between 12 and 1pm on Tuesday 16 April.
If you can't make the chat, post your question in the comments below and we'll ask it for you. All the questions and answers will be published here on the Community News Blog after the chat.
You can also speak to a nurse like Pamela or Bill on the free Macmillan
Support Line (0808 808 0000, Monday-Friday, 9am-8pm).
There is some more information that you might
find helpful in our website sections on coping
with advanced cancer and end
