Marie Curie Cancer Care
Cancer is the UK’s biggest killer claiming 423 lives every day.
For more than 50 years across the UK Marie Curie Cancer Care has been caring for people affected by cancer and their families.
At Marie Curie Cancer Care we think people should be able to decide where they spend the last few weeks of their lives.
So for those patients who would like to be cared for at home, the Marie Curie Nursing service plays a vital role. Our Nurses work through the day and nights, usually eight or nine hours at a time, to care for the patients and allow the family to get some well-earned rest.
In addition to providing expert nursing care for the patient – free of charge – Marie Curie Nurses are also there to give emotional support and advice to the family. As well as providing a home nursing service, the charity runs local Marie Curie hospices in Liverpool, Bradford and Newcastle which provide the best possible quality of life for people with cancer.
For further details contact Winfields or turn up and give your support to the walkers.
