Maggie’s support is needed more than ever and their long term aim is to establish 60 centres at major NHS cancer hospitals across the UK but they can only do that with your support.
Maggie’s and the Power of the Bike
Maggie’s knows how important it is to keep active and healthy before, during and after treatment.
Many of their centre visitors use cycling and the power of the bike to manage the physical and emotional challenges of cancer. Calum, found strength in his renewed love of cycling after his partner, who was supported by Maggie’s, died.
