West Midlands, pledge to leave a gift in your Will
Val from Rednal, Birmingham has pledged to leave a gift in her Will
"I began supporting Cancer Research UK in 1984 when my lovely mum was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was treated with a lumpectomy but sadly died in 1985. It was heart-breaking and still is to this day. I know everyone says their mum is the best, but mine really was.
My motivation for pledging to leave a gift in my will is because I hope the money raised will fund research so no other families have to go through what ours did and so that no other 21 year old has to lose their beloved mother to cancer.
I am passionate about finding cures for this horrible heart-breaking disease, I’d like to turn heart break into survival. I want the money from my lifetime to do something everlasting."
1 in 2 people will get cancer in their lifetime*. Our research saves lives. We’ve come a long way, but we cannot rest while people still suffer. That’s why we’re committed to ensuring 3 in 4 people in the UK diagnosed with cancer will survive for 10 years or more by 2034 and, beyond that, even more.
Cancer Research UK receives no government funding, and gifts in Wills account for over a third of our life-saving research. Without them we simply would not be able to undertake all the vital research we do which could one day beat cancer.
Make a pledge right now to leave a gift in your Will and together we will beat cancer for future generations.
