Fighting Cancer with More Than Medicine : A History of Macmillan Cancer Support Hardback
Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the largest and best known charities in Britain.
It is celebrated for providing Macmillan nurses to offer care and support to cancer sufferers.
But there is more to the charity than its wide reputation.
It provides doctors, hospices, financial aid and advice for people whose lives have been turned upside down by a growing and brutal disease.
It has been at the heart of the fight against cancer for a hundred years. And until now no history has ever been written. This book is the heart-warming story of how a small charity with its beginnings in Edwardian England has grown from a society of lay people with a unique focus into a huge organisation that is at the forefront of cancer care.
Former Deputy Chief Executive Paul Rossi traces its origins and development alongside the story of cancer itself, and discovers how the organisation has put a positive perspective on an ongoing struggle.
