Cancer Talk Week

Receiving a cancer diagnosis is hard. Talking about it can be even harder. Cancer Talk Week takes place from 20th - 26th January, and Macmillan want to make it easier for you to start the conversations you might be struggling with.

Time to break the taboo

It's often hard to talk honestly about cancer. Patients, family members, partners, colleagues and carers - anyone can find it hard to talk about the impact cancer is having on their lives. This can lead to feelings of isolation.

Macmillan believes no one should face cancer alone. During Cancer Talk Week they're encouraging anyone affected by cancer to talk to us, ask for the support they need and join us in being there for others.

We've set up a Cancer Talk Week Display outside the Multi Faith Centre, Entrance 2 Manchester Royal Infirmary, all week. Or drop by the Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Centre: Main Outpatients, MRI

Throughout Cancer Talk Week, Macmillan will be hosting web chats on their Facebook page; and tweeting about cancer using the hashtag #CancerTalk. You can also chip in on their hashtags #phrasesihate and #phrasesilove to share what makes it difficult or easy for you to talk to people.
