A bit of sun to combat the November cold in this week's #meetmacmillan pic - meet Milly! 'Hi I’m Milly, and I’ve been working in the central volunteering team for just over 3 months. My team’s role is to enable all of our wonderful #volunteer managers to provide the best experience possible for our volunteers, from the moment they start volunteering through their whole journey with us. I love working for Macmillan and being part of something special, and seeing the commitment and energy our volunteers give. Outside of work I sing, run, and dream of my next adventure abroad (sometimes at work too)! I recently completed a 24 hour run, and one of my next challenges is the San Francisco half marathon – wish me luck on those hills!' #ukrunchat

Share a moment when #LifeWithCancer is still life. Whether you’re dancing, taking a walk in the park or just enjoying a nice cuppa with a friend, post your image or video using #LifeWithCancer and tag @macmillancancer. “For me, #LifeWithCancer is dancing because it makes me feel free and alive. It’s appreciating how precious and unpredictable life is today, because tomorrow is not guaranteed for anyone” – Lea. Lea found the support she received from Macmillan was really helpful - from financial information, to counselling, to a meeting with a cancer specialist dietitian.

Three months after Ruth's treatment for Ewing's Sarcoma, she was more tired than she'd ever been. We worked with Ruth to tell her story about her experience, which became the video 'Fatigue is Real'. Now, we need your vote to help it win a Charity Film Award! Vote at bit.ly/2B10UU2 or swipe up on our Story! #openwaterswimming #fatigue

On this week's #meetmacmillan, we're following one fantastic Emma with another! 'Hi I’m Emma, I work in the PR team at Macmillan promoting all the great fundraising events we run like World’s Biggest #CoffeeMorning, the Longest Day Golf Challenge and Go Sober for October. I live something of a double life as a part-time PR and part-time yoga teacher, which is why I am balanced on one leg here! Maybe I should set up a yoga challenge for Macmillan, hmmm….' #yogapose #instayoga

Share a moment when #LifeWithCancer is still life. Whether you’re swimming, having lunch with friends or just enjoying a walk in the park, post your image or video using #LifeWithCancer and tag @macmillancancer.
For Ruth, #LifeWithCancer is finding her new 'normal' after treatment, so she can go to work, swim, meet friends, and do the things she used to whilst dealing with the side effects from treatment.

For this week's #meetmacmillan, we're heading to Scotland to meet Emma! 'Hey! I’m Emma and I'm the Corporate Fundraising Manager for Macmillan in Glasgow, I can’t believe I’ve been here almost 3 years now, time flies when you are having fun! I get to meet lots of new people every week and work alongside lots of amazing companies who are raising money for Macmillan so we can provide even more services in the local area. Outside of work I love spending time with my amazing friends and family and my super fluffy cat, Pepper. I love to bake and this picture is from my annual #cocktails and cake party which I host to raise money for Macmillan, espresso martinis & Mojito cheesecake is my speciality!' 🍸💚 #bakersofinstagram

For Ellis, #LifeWithCancer is playing #basketball and spending time with friends. Share a moment when your #LifeWithCancer is still life. Whether you're playing sport or enjoying a cuppa with loved ones, post your image or video using #LifeWithCancer and tag @macmillancancer. Ellis found the support Macmillan gave his family was crucial when coping with the emotional side of cancer.

When Sal was diagnosed with breast cancer, she found #gardening was a great way to get active. Not only did it help her 'take back control' but she really enjoyed 'getting outside and seeing things grow'. Sal shares her top gardening tips with us at macmillan.org.uk/turnoveranewleaf

On this week's #meetmacmillan, here's someone you may have already seen on our #CoffeeMorning ads... Paul! 'Hi there, I’m Paul, HR's Communication & Engagement Officer. My varied working background began at 2 different professional London football clubs before playing up & down the UK (and in 2 other countries!) on the non-league scene. My Macmillan career is now 10 months old and I’ve already featured in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning adverts... Loving the limelight! Macmillan's an amazing fit for my personality, experience and work life balance. My daily interactions with scores of employees energizes me... and hopefully them too! How many people can say they enjoy coming to work? I most certainly can 😉'

'I genuinely can't express my feelings of pride. I crossed the finish line 3 years ago carrying my daughter, but this was special as sadly her Nanny passed away two weeks earlier.' Alan has now run with #TeamMacmillan at the @edinburghmarathonfestival 6 times - he says all the fantastic Macmillan cheerers keep him motivated between the highs of the start and finish lines! If you'd like to join Alan on the #edinburghmarathon start line, or take on one of the other EMF events, visit macmillan.org.uk/edinburghmarathon or swipe up on the link in our story!
