Marie Curie charity focus for Brentford
Marie Curie are the featured charity for Swansea City's game against Brentford on Tuesday and will be on site to provide information about their services.
Marie Curie provide care and support for more than 3,500 people living with a terminal illness in Wales each year. Our ageing population means more and more people are living with a terminal illness in the UK.
Whether dealing with dementia, cancer, motor neurone disease, heart failure, Parkinson's disease, or any other illness, Marie Curie will be here for you and your family to help you cope.
They're here to provide support for anyone affected by terminal illness to achieve the best quality of life, and maintain independence and dignity.
Information and Support
If you've been diagnosed with a terminal illness, or you're supporting someone who has, they offer a range of information and guidance online through their freephone Support Line, via web chat and in free publications and resources. Whether you need specific, practical guidance or you just need someone to talk to, they're here for you.
Nursing Care & Hospices
There are around 150 Marie Curie nurses working in Wales, making it possible for people with a terminal illness to die peacefully at home, surrounded by the people that mean the most to them.
The Marie Curie Hospice in Penarth, cares for around 1,000 people each year, including people staying in the hospice and those visiting to utilise their services.
Thanks to the generosity of their supporters, these services are offered free of charge to those in need.
Marie Curie need to raise around £4.5 million a year to fund their hospices and nursing care in Wales. If you would like to find out more about supporting Marie Curie in your area, contact your community fundraiser Ali Discombe by emailing Alison.Discombe@MarieCurie.org.uk or phone 01554 759071.
