Marie Curie

Marie Curie provides care and support for people living with any terminal illness, and their families. We’ve been carrying out this vital work for over 65 years – last year alone we cared for over 40,000 people across the UK. We can’t do what we do without our supporters, only you can make sure we can continue caring for people living with a terminal illness across the UK.
