This year, along with many of my Marie Curie nursing colleagues, I spent the festive period with a patient so that they could be at home with their family. I am writing to say thank you to Asda for kindly donating 250 gifts - luxury bouquets of flowers and an Olay Double Action Day Cream - to nurses, like me, who gave up time with their own families so that someone with a terminal illness could spend their final Christmas at home.Marie Curie nurses care for terminally ill patients 365 days a year - giving them the choice of staying where they feel most comfortable, surrounded by the people and things they love the most. While it is an honour to share such a special time with patients, I thank Asda for recognising the difference it makes to patients and their families. Linda Damon,Marie Curie Nurse
