Cash plea for terminally ill

26th February 2008

The charity Marie Curie Cancer Care has said a project which aims to aid more people to die in their own homes is in jeopardy due to not enough funding.

Marie Curie Cancer Care said that £2m in extra funds per annum could enable it to grow a project which has "more than doubled" the amount of people able to die at home. The charity's chief executive, Thomas Hughes-Hallett, said: "My main worry is that without the funding it won't happen. And this is the moment that it must happen."
