Join Team CRUK and help them fight over 200 types of cancer through their life-saving research, which will bring forward the day where all cancers are cured. The generosity of their supporters has enabled the charity to lead the way in discovering and developing newer, kinder treatments and cures.

One in two of us will be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetime, but more of us beat cancer than ever before – in fact survival rates have doubled since the 1970’s. So run the Southampton Marathon, Half & 10k, and together we will beat cancer.

Maggie’s in Southampton provides information, advice and support for people with cancer and their loved ones living for the South Coast. Our centre is just a short walk away from the oncology department at University Hospital Southampton. We aim to provide emotional, practical and social support for anyone affected by cancer including carers, all delivered within a calming and inspiring environment.

The support we offer is wide-ranging and includes delivering sessions on topics such as coping with hair loss, facilitating peer support groups, offering relaxation and exercise classes such as Tai Chi and mindfulness, as well as providing individual benefits advice and one-to-one psychological support.

Everyone needs something different and we work with each individual to identify the most suitable elements of our programme that will empower them to negotiate a way through their own or a loved ones’ cancer experience. We support people at all stages of the cancer journey, from diagnosis to treatment, through to remission and bereavement.
