We offer expert care, guidance and support to people living with a terminal illness


Where do you want to spend your last days? – given the choice I personally would prefer to die at home.

"The majority of people, if facing a terminal illness, would prefer to die in their own home. However, only around a quarter of people have that final wish fulfilled.

Marie Curie Cancer Care provides high quality nursing, totally free, to give people with terminal cancer and other illnesses the choice of dying at home, supported by their families."  

You’re making a big difference

Every £20 will fund a Marie Curie Nurse for one hour to care for a terminally ill patient in their own home.

£160 will pay for a whole shift for a Marie Curie Nurse to be there to support a patient and their carer for a whole day or night.

£12,000 needs to be raised every hour of every day to fund their work.

Only a quarter of all terminally ill cancer patients in the UK currently die at home.  Marie Curie Nurses care for half of them - but they want to reach more.

Your donation will help make this a reality for ALL.
