If you would like to talk to someone else…
Macmillan Telephone Buddies If you need to talk about your cancer, we’re here to listen. With a weekly call from one of our Telephone Buddies, you don’t have to face cancer alone.
How a Telephone Buddy helps Going through cancer can be an isolating experience at any time, and especially when social distancing. Our free Telephone Buddy service is here for you. We’ll match you with someone who understands what you’re going through, and they’ll give you a weekly call. Your volunteer buddy will be a listening ear, ready to talk about how you’re feeling and your support needs during this difficult time.
They can also let you know about our other services, and all the ways Macmillan can help, so you don’t have to face cancer alone.
