About Marie Curie And our team of superstars

Every day of your life matters – from the first to the last.

When you’re living with a terminal illness, you feel that more than ever. The right care and support at the right time can make all the difference. Whether it’s terminal cancer or any other illness, we want people to be able to get the most from the time they have left.

Marie Curie Nurses work night and day, in people’s homes across the UK, providing hands-on care and vital emotional support. Our hospices offer specialist round-the-clock care and we support people throughout their illness by giving practical information and being there when someone wants to talk.

Over the last 75 years, we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of people and their families. But our ageing population means more and more people are living with a terminal illness. Even now, 1 in 4 people don't get the care and support they need. We don’t think that’s good enough. We think more has to be done.

So we need to do more, for more of the people who need us, than we ever have before. And we urgently need your support to make that possible.
