    Douglas Macmillan was deeply affected by the experience of losing his father to cancer in 1911. It prompted him to found the Society for the Prevention and Relief of Cancer (later to be known as Macmillan Cancer Support) with the aim of providing free care and nursing for cancer sufferers. This history charts Macmillan's pioneering work, how his charity grew and flourished and how the treatment of and attitudes to cancer in the UK were transformed as a result.
