Story

Riley, Gillian and Anne are walking 300000 steps in March in memory of their beautiful Auntie Nicola, sister and daughter who we lost to a glioblastoma brain tumour in 2017.  Nicola was cared for by the amazing team in the Marie Curie, Edinburgh hospice from May - July 2017.  Our family will be forever grateful to the hospice for their endless care to Nicola and support they gave our whole family at that incredibly difficult time.

Our hospice is a warm and welcoming place, supporting people in Edinburgh and their loved ones with expert care, every day of the year. Our doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and social workers are supported by a team of volunteers, who play a vital role in the running of the hospice.Some of the people we support stay in our in-patient unit, where relatives and friends can visit any time of the day or night and stay with their loved ones if they wish to.We also support local people with clinics, therapies and activities during the day including one-to-one care, groups and things like reiki and massage. As well as people with a terminal illness, we also support carers and families with things like bereavement support groups where people can share their experiences and feelings.Thank you for supporting us, and helping to make sure more people with a terminal illness in Edinburgh get the care and support they need.
