Stockton North MP, Alex Cunningham, showed his support for Macmillan Cancer Support by attending a World’s Biggest Coffee Morning Event at Parliament last week.
The event followed the success of Macmillan’s fundraising event in September 2016, and marked the launch of the new report, Am I Meant To Be Okay Now: Stories of Life After Treatment, which focuses on the challenges people face after their cancer treatment ends.
I was delighted to be able to attend Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, which is a fantastic annual fixture at Parliament. These Coffee Mornings have always been about encouraging people to get together and talk about all the issues people living with cancer have to deal with.
This event provided a really important opportunity to hear more about the physical and emotional challenges that people can face after finishing cancer treatment, as well as a chance to learn more about what Macmillan offers to people affected by cancer.
Whilst a cancer experience is always significant – life with cancer is still life, and it was great to hear about how Macmillan supports people to live it in the best possible way
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising of the year. There is still time to get involved, and more information can be found via www.macmillan.org.uk/coffee
