With so many people sadly having died alone during the pandemic, coronavirus has highlighted how important care from Marie Curie Nurses like Georgina Clue is. By remembering Marie Curie in your Will, you’ll help to provide vital support for more families in the future.
A gift to Marie Curie will bring comfort to families at the toughest of times: when someone they love is dying. Your gift means they'll get a helping hand and the reassurance of a friendly face at a difficult time. Your legacy means vital care and support when it's needed most.
Caring for loved ones through the night
“I became a Marie Curie Nurse after seeing the wonderful care they gave my mum when she was dying. I wanted to give other people that compassionate human contact and support in their final hours. It’s a gift that you can give too, when you remember Marie Curie in your Will; a gift thats given with love. Most of the families I visit are absolutely exhausted, but when I arrive they can get respite. I care for their loved one through the night in their home, so families can make the most of time together in the day.”
“Gifts in Wills also help us care for people who have nobody beside them. At the height of the pandemic, I was often the only human contact that some people had. I’m glad I could be there to give medication, pain relief and compassion.”

Your legacy, with love
Your Will tells the people you leave behind about the person you are. It’s about the people you love and the things you care about. Your Will helps pass on your principles and the values that matter to you.
We all have financial commitments, which means we can’t always do as much as we’d like to help other people. A gift left in your Will is an opportunity to give more than you might ever have been able to give in your lifetime, providing comfort, care and compassion for people long into the future.

Help us be there for more people in the future
Unfortunately, one in four people don’t get the care we all deserve at the end of life, or the choice about where they’d like to spend their final days.
With an aging population in the UK, the demand for Marie Curie care is growing.
Gifts in Wills ensure Marie Curie Nurses can be there to provide one-to-one specialist care to someone living with a terminal illness and support for their loved ones, far into the future.
“By including a gift in your Will to Marie Curie, of even one percent of your estate, you can help us be there for more people in the future, leaving a legacy of love and compassion. That’s a wonderful gift to leave behind.”

"The Marie Curie Nurses made such a difference. Our son Jon died two days after his 23rd birthday and we couldn’t have coped without their support. We’re leaving a gift to Marie Curie because we want others to benefit from the wonderful care we had."
