If you are self-employed at the time of your blood cancer diagnosis, financial issues may be particularly worrying to you. But there is support to help you cope with this and to help support you and your family during your recovery.

If you are self-employed and are diagnosed with a blood cancer, this can be especially worrying as you as you may think that if your not working you can't earn money. However, support is out there if you are self-employed as you may be entitled to benefits that can help you with the cost of living whilst undergoing cancer treatment.

You can find out more information about this on the website or through Macmillan.
