We Laughed - Billy Bragg


If you've been affected by Maxine and Billy's song, here are some organisations which can give you more information or support.

Breast Cancer Care provides free information, practical help and emotional support to over one million people a year who are affected by breast cancer. The charity also campaigns to ensure that people have access to the best treatment available. The website is packed with useful information about breast cancer. There is a vibrant support community on the website's message boards for people living with breast cancer and for their partners, friends or relatives.

Rd4u is a website run for and by young people who have experienced the death of someone close to them. It has practical suggestions about coping with loss. Users can swap stories on the message boards and read stories about how other teenagers coped with their bereavement. The website was created by the national bereavement charity, Cruse Bereavement Care. There is also a special helpline: 0808 808 1677

Young Carers
There are almost 175,000 young carers in the UK, and many of them will be helping to look after a relative or parent who has cancer. Young carers have the same hopes and dreams as anybody else, but they have different worries and responsibilities. The Young Carers website run by the Princess Royal Trust for Carers is a good place to find out about under-18s in similar situations, with added help and advice about how to find practical support and understanding is the website for the Joseph Weld and Trimar Hospice where Maxine and Billy worked on the song during her treatment. The charity provides high-quality, community-based care for people with life-threatening diseases in Dorset.
