  • Women Driving Political Change

Saturday, 5 March 2016

Everyone has the right to palliative care when they need it, but one in four people who need palliative care die without receiving it. 

Palliative care can make a huge difference to people living with terminal illness and their families. It helps people to live as well as they can until they die. 

Across the UK, Marie Curie is raising awareness on this issue and for communities, yet more needs to be done. Marie Curie cares about and wants to ensure the campaign is championed appropriately and the right to palliative care.

Without urgent action to improve access to high-quality palliative care, many more people will miss out in the future.  Marie Curie  needs our help to make sure across the UK, there is a strong commitment to making access to proper care and support for everyone who is affected by terminal illness a reality. 

Solihull has it’s own local Marie Curie centre, and Marie Curie volunteers are raising awareness of their 30th Great Daffodil Appeal in support of cancer care.  

Do take time to join the Marie Curie campaign and take action for this great cause and get behind the daffodil this March. Local communities are already individually supporting the annual fundraising campaign by wearing the Marie Curie daffodil pin. 

For more information about the Great Daffodil Appeal and to volunteer to collect for Marie Curie, please visit https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/get-involved/daffodil-appeal
