This moving 2-minute Macmillan Cancer Support advert shows how cancer impacts both those living with the diagnosis as well as their family and friends. The ad also highlights the supportive role of Macmillian staff and how even they are affected sometimes.
The film is quite difficult to watch as it directly shows the emotional and challenging situations that cancer can bring on people’s lives.
