How leaving a gift in your Will supports research
Could buy a diamond knife to slice through cells, allowing us to study them closely to find new ways to target cancer's weak spots.
Could fund one week of our Add Aspirin clinical trial into stopping cancer coming back after treatment
15% of a £400,000 estate
Could buy a DNA-sequencing machine that allows our scientists to analyse a huge amount of DNA very quickly, helping them to learn more about cancer
I will continue to fight cancer until I pass away, so why not continue to fight cancer when I am gone - Jo, Pledger
I decided to leave a gift in my Will to Cancer Research UK and used the Free Will Service. I am leaving a gift because we have been fighting cancer as a family since my wife Sue was diagnosed in 1993. She was diagnosed with phaeochromocytoma in 1993 and given six months to live. Fortunately, Sue was able to have a radioactive treatment. The treatment allowed her to live a normal life, bringing up the children and going back to work until she sadly passed away in 2003.
Why residuary gifts can make the most impact
A residuary gift is a share, or sometimes all, of an estate. Residuary gifts are much more valuable as they ensure your gift doesn't lose value over the years and can further help to beat cancer for future generations.
What is a simple Will
A simple Will is usually a Will where there is no inheritance tax involved due to the value of your estate. It might also be a Will with no complex issues. We recommend talking to a solicitor about what a simple Will means to you.
