IT'S two years since coronavirus changed the world, especially for those living with cancer.

Today there are thousands of people facing late diagnoses, worsened outcomes and treatment delays as well as the psychological impact of the knock-on effects of the pandemic.

Here at Maggie's, we have been supporting people living with cancer throughout.

In 2021, we supported people 245,000 times and have been seeing people face-to-face whenever possible while also adapting to give our support by phone, email and online.

We supported people coping with knowing their time is limited in lockdown, those unable to be with their loved ones at the end, and people facing treatment and all it brings without the usual support of family and friends.

We know our support is vital.

We also know it’s needed now more than ever and we couldn’t do what we do without the ongoing generosity of players of People’s Postcode Lottery, who have given Maggie’s nearly £20 million in 14 years.

We can’t thank players enough – this support has helped us to reach as many people living with cancer as possible regardless of the pandemic.

Best wishes,

Dame Laura Lee, CEO Maggie’s
