Maggie's offers the best possible support free to anyone with cancer and their families who walk through our doors. You'll find centres alongside NHS hospitals and they can also support you online.The building is on stilts and is wooden, opposite the Victoria Breast Care Unit.
Maggie's help people take back control of cancer when their life seems upside down. They offer support and treatment advice, from side effects to money concerns. The professional support is free and there is no appointment necessary. Just call in!
Maggie Keswick Jencks – the founder, used her own experience of having cancer to create a new type of cancer care. The first Maggie's opened in Edinburgh in 1996, and we now have a network of centres across the UK and some abroad. She was a writer and designer, diagnosed with breast cancer in 1993. "Above all what matters is not to lose the joy of living in the fear of dying".
Maggie wanted to bring people together, to find comfort in a time where it can be very scary and lonely. Making cancer manageable and helping people take back control.
Maggie's in Oldham offers free one-to-one help and information, there are groups and activities available to join. This is a calming space, and if activities are not your thing, then it might be just a cup of tea and an ear that you need. Sign up to the newsletter for info on fundraising events.
Some new sessions are coming soon, which will help around managing stress and a Bereavement Group too – if you're interested in any of these or would like a chat, get in touch.
