Magherafelt and Cookstown Macmillan Cancer Support Committee are delighted that the family of the late Eugene McGovern and Desertmartin GAA club have chosen to support them at their upcoming Football Day on Saturday 24th May.

Did you know that; Cancer can affect anyone irrespective of age or gender. At present 2 million people in the UK are living with a cancer diagnosis. By 2030 that number will rise to 4 million.

It is anticipated that by 2020 in Northern Ireland one in two of us will be living with a diagnosis. 890 people in the UK are given a cancer diagnosis everyday.

The generosity of those in Northern Ireland over the past 7 years has enabled us to build and fund the new Macmillan Unit at Antrim Area Hospital. This is a state of the art facility that has been highly praised by all those who have used it.

Our new focus is "no one should face cancer alone" and it is essential that we are prepared for the increased numbers of those with a diagnosis in 2020. We are going to need more specialist nurses and doctors. We are going to need more financial advisers as so often money worries are very stressful during treatments.

All money that is raised from this event will remain in Northern Ireland and will be used for the benefit of those who live locally.Macmillan has been in existence for over 100 years and it is totally funded by people like you. Without your support we would not be able to help the 3 in 4 people that we do at present. .We are determined that everyone living with cancer and their loved ones get the support they need. We can't do this without people like you. Your support for this event is very much appreciated and every penny that goes through the locally committee is earmarked to help someone you may know living near you. Thank you for your generosity.
