Many thanks to Girlguiding Midlands - the trailblazers for the Macmillan Challenge - who produced awareness resources in collaboration with Macmillan Cancer Support. These resources include section age-appropriate activities which can be run as part of a unit meeting.— Sally Christmas, Chief Commissioner
Help with difficult conversations
This is an optional strand of the Macmillan Challenge because we know that for some girls, cancer may be a sensitive topic. To help prepare for difficult conversations, you can download a letter to be sent to parents to advise them that the unit will be doing cancer-related activities. That way if they have any concerns, they are invited to talk with you.
