How your gift will help

By leaving us a legacy gift, you will make a lasting difference. Gifts in Wills support the hospital’s pioneering research, giving hope to more cancer patients across the UK and around the world.

Leaving a gift in your Will can transform the lives of countless people who are touched by cancer

Just as every patient is unique, so is their disease. The Royal Marsden’s aim is to make personalised medicine a routine part of cancer care for all patients.

Gifts in Wills have helped to fund the groundbreaking NIHR Centre for Molecular Pathology which brings clinicians and scientists together under one roof to better understand the different types of cancer, and develop personalised treatments.

The West Wing Clinical Research Centre, entirely funded by gifts in Wills, increases the amount of research trials we can run and the number of opportunities for personalised treatment for patients.

Giving helps pioneer lifesaving research

Thomas was 26 years old when diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2018. Thanks to life-saving treatment at The Royal Marsden, Thomas is now able to live life to the fullest with his young family.

It felt like I had won the lottery when I found out I was eligible for the CAB-T therapy trial. I was proud to be the first person to receive the incredible news that it had worked. The Royal Marsden saved my life.

Your gift makes our pioneering treatment possible

Medical Director, Dr Nicholas van As sees first-hand the difference that gifts in Wills can make. These special gifts helped to fund the first CyberKnife, a radiotherapy system that treats patients with pinpoint accuracy, meaning less healthy tissue is damaged and patients spend less time in hospital.

We’re incredibly grateful to all supporters who leave a gift in their Will. Some of my own research is funded this way, helping to accelerate advancements in the field of radiotherapy.

Give back to the future

Thanks to your support, The Royal Marsden can change the lives of countless cancer patients every year. We need to continue making research breakthroughs to develop new and better treatments.

The Royal Marsden will always have a very special place in my heart

Michelle was diagnosed with cervical cancer when pregnant with twins.

The Royal Marsden saved me and my unborn twin girls. I found out I had cervical cancer when I was 19 weeks pregnant. Without the extraordinary treatment I received, I wouldn’t be here today to see my children grow up.

I’m so grateful for the future we now have, and The Royal Marsden will always have a very special place in my heart.
