We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who ran the +Virgin Money London Marathon for us last Sunday. More than 240 runners took part for Marie Curie - the biggest Daffodil Team since 2006. Participants have banked more than £143,000 so far, and funds are still coming in.

From all of us at Marie Curie, a great big THANK YOU to everyone who donated their time and collected for the Great Daffodil Appeal this year.

Thank you to everyone who got over last-minute nerves and made their first collection, and to the old hands who came back to collect again. Thank you to all the friends and family members of all ages who went with you to help or cheer you on. Thank you for donning yellow tabards and hats (even if you felt a bit foolish at first), and for putting your creativity into eye-catching outfits. And thank you for sharing your photos and stories which inspired other collectors, and helped make the Daffodil Appeal so much fun.

Most of all, thank you for collecting donations. Those hours you spent in shops, stations and town centres will allow more terminally ill people to receive care from Marie Curie Nurses, and allow more families to get the support they need. Thank you so much.

The Great Daffodil Appeal 2014

“The Marie Curie nurses did more than look after mum, they took away her fear.” 

Alison Steadman shares her own story of how Marie Curie Cancer Care touched her life when her mother was diagnosed with a terminal illness.

You can help Marie Curie nurses care for and support terminally ill patients and their families by donating and wearing a daffodil this March.

Did you see tonight's Call the Midwife? The series finale finished with the shocking revelation that Nurse Jenny Lee, inspired by caring for Chummy's mother in her final hours, is leaving
Nonnatus House to become a Marie Curie Nurse.
 
Writer and Executive Producer Heidi Thomas said the subject was one very close to her heart, "I first witnessed the miraculous power of a good death when someone very close to me passed away in a Marie Curie Hospice,"
 
"Bereavement will always hurt, but letting a loved one go with tenderness and care can be immensely healing for all involved. The end of life is as important as its beginning, which is why we
decided to tackle this supremely emotional topic in Call The Midwife."
 
Our very own Marie Curie Nurse Ann Brady also began her career as a midwife, read about her story in our latest blog post.

Story

Our nurses work in the community to provide end-of-life care for patients in their own homes.
Introduction

Marie Curie Cancer Care provides free nursing care for people with terminal cancer and other illnesses, allowing them the choice of spending their final days at home or in one of the charity’s nine hospices.

The charity is best known for its network of Marie Curie Nurses who work in the heart of communities across the UK providing free care to people at home. The nurses care for patients throughout the night or during the day, giving families a much needed rest and providing emotional support at what can be the most exhausting time of their lives. Marie Curie Cancer Care employs more than 2,700 nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals and provided care to more than 31,000 terminally ill patients last year.

They also fund end of life care research to provide the evidence to inform and improve better end of life care for patients, carers and families.
