Here is a little bit about Marie Curie

Marie Curie is a well-known international charity that provides care and support for people living with terminal illnesses, as well as their families. The organization was founded in 1948 and is named after the famous physicist and chemist Marie Curie, who made groundbreaking discoveries in the field of radiation.

Marie Curie offers a range of services, including hospice care, nursing support, and guidance for families facing end-of-life situations. They have specialist nurses who provide hands-on care and emotional support for patients in their own homes or in Marie Curie hospices.

In addition to providing direct care, Marie Curie also invests in research to improve end-of-life care and advance medical knowledge in the field. They work collaboratively with healthcare professionals, policymakers, and other organizations to advocate for better palliative care and support for individuals and families facing terminal illnesses.

Fundraising is a crucial part of Marie Curie’s work, as it allows them to continue providing their services free of charge. They rely on the generosity and support of individuals, communities, and corporate partners to fund their vital work.

Marie Curie is widely recognized and respected for their dedication to improving the quality of life for people living with terminal illnesses. Their compassionate care and support make a significant difference in the lives of those they serve, providing comfort and dignity during difficult times.
