Google Doodle prompts Marie Curie Cancer Care App
Today Google is celebrating Marie Curie’s 144th birthday, the Google Doodle prompts the Marie Curie Collection Tin iPhone app. This application has the Great Daffodil stamped on it, which is all to do with the Great Daffodil Appeal, Marie Curie Cancer Care’s biggest fundraising campaign happens throughout March each year.
Daffodil pin badges are sold via street collections and shops, everyone is encouraged to wear them as this shows fantastic support of Marie Curie Nurses. The Daffodil Marie Curie Cancer Care in 1986 adopted the flower emblem, and is the emblem of leading cancer charities in Republic of Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

This app is well worth downloading, as we all know nurses across the world provide end of life care to people with cancer and other terminal illnesses, this care happens at hospices and at their homes.
