15,235* supporters in the West Midlands have left a gift in their Will to Cancer Research UK
Val shares her personal reason for leaving 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 that no other families go through what ours did. And no other 21-year-old has to lose their beloved mother to cancer."
