I've had quite a journey with cancer over the years - Jacky, Lincolnshire

Jacky has pledge to leave a gift in her Will

“I've had quite a journey with cancer over the years. I've had breast cancer, malignant skin cancer, and I currently have Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

When I got diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma my amazing doctor suggested I try a drug called Rituximab. It worked well by reducing my cancer and made it less invasive. For this drug, I have Cancer Research UK to thank.

I thought I was going to lose my life, but Rituximab has given me my life back and has given me a better quality of my life for the last 5 years. I want to help people who are in a similar situation to me.

I want to leave a gift in my Will to Cancer Research UK to give other people a better quality of life.”
