"2020 was quite a year. I'm just hoping that now I can start focusing on my new cancer treatment. Despite the current lockdown, I'm determined to stay positive. I do believe there's usually always something better waiting around the corner." - Liz:
"When my beloved grandmother died, I was pregnant. This meant I was unable to help my family care for her in those final days and weeks. It was heart-breaking, but honouring her memory meant upholding the traditions that meant so much to her." - Sonia:
"We’re thinking of our colleagues in the NHS, especially in ICU right now, and sending much support. Here at Marie Curie we’re all doing our bit to get through. Our nurses are out and about supporting dying people at home. We’re here for you." - Nurse Mairead, Rapid Response Team
