Dear Nurse, thank you

A hand to hold. A shoulder to cry on. A gentle touch to reassure. A light to guide you through the darkest hours.

Marie Curie Nurses do so much for families living with terminal illness, all in the space of a nine-hour shift.

We asked some of our nurses to read thank you letters from families they’ve helped.

Meet the people behind the letters

Every night, nurses like Pam and Alma help make people’s final moments peaceful, dignified and as free from pain as possible.

If someone you love is approaching the end of their life, we can help you understand what to expect.
