Having information can help you understand your situation better,
feel more in control and make informed decisions. Here at Macmillan, we want to
reach everyone who’s affected by cancer, whoever they are. But making sure the
right information gets to people at the right time, in the right format, can be
a challenge. That’s why we produce our content in a range of different formats,
Who can audio

We endeavour to make our audio information as high-quality
as possible. Some of the things you might find helpful about our audiobooks
Examples of the
audiobooks we produce
Coping with fatigue
If you find you’re just too tired to read information, but
you want to know how to cope with these feelings, you might find our audiobook Coping
with fatigue helpful. You can
listen to discussions about why fatigue arises and how to deal with it at work
and home. It also talks about diet, exercise, relaxation and sleep.
One thing that can be affected if you have a brain tumour is
eyesight. Our audiobook Understanding
brain tumours is there for people who are having difficulty reading
print. It talks about causes and symptoms, diagnosis, staging and grading,
treatments and clinical trials. It also talks about the emotional, practical
and financial issues that you might experience when facing a brain tumour
Cancer and older
We know that older people affected by cancer may have a greater need to have
information in accessible and clearer formats. With this in mind, we produced the
and older people as an audiobook for those people who find it difficult
to read print. It suggests specific questions you might want to ask about
cancer and which health professional may be able to answer them. There’s
information about symptoms, how cancer is diagnosed and treated, how it can
affect you and how to cope.
