A human approach to cancer support

Cancer tries to steal a person’s sense of self. We’re fighting back by arming cancer patients with tools they need to look and feel their best.

When undergoing treatment for cancer, people face an overwhelming number of decisions. From determining the logistics of a treatment plan, to navigating insurance coverage, to balancing work and family responsibilities, it’s an all-encompassing experience that touches every aspect of a patient’s life.

But just because big decisions must be made doesn’t mean the little things no longer matter. Sometimes, it’s those little things – a chance to go out to dinner with your spouse, the ability to pop in to your local pharmacy and get advice on a troubling side effect of your medication, expert guidance on how best to draw in the eyebrows chemo stole from you – that make all the difference.

Walgreens Boots Alliance aims to take a holistic approach to cancer care through unique programs at our stores in the U.S. and UK. With its Feel More Like You program, Walgreens integrates clinical care from knowledgeable pharmacists with free beauty support services from specially trained beauty consultants to help those living with cancer get the care and the confidence they deserve. And in the UK, Boots and Macmillan Cancer Support have combined forces to provide the same level of support directly in store through its Boots Macmillan Information Pharmacists and Boots Macmillan Beauty Advisors.

Our commitment to oncology means supporting individuals affected by cancer in every aspect of their lives, not just fighting the disease itself. In the videos below, you can see exactly what that commitment means to our patients, customers and colleagues all around the world.
