Advancing groundbreaking research of the future

Carol has responded well to treatment, which is helping to slow and manage her breast cancer.

At The Royal Marsden, it’s not just about outstanding care – the advancements they are making through research are truly groundbreaking. It’s so reassuring to know I’m receiving the best possible treatment, which is why I want to help other people affected by cancer.

I’m immensely proud to leave a gift in my Will, knowing it will go towards research that will transform the lives of cancer patients for years to come.

Grandmother’s gift to improve the lives of others

Jean, left a gift in her Will in memory of her grandson Andrew. Jean’s daughter Jackie said:

My mother left a gift to the Charity in her Will, as she wanted to give something back. 

As a family, we also raised funds to allow the hospital to buy DVD players for nearly every bed on the ward where Andrew was treated.

We’re all so proud to give something back to The Royal Marsden, it’s a wonderful place - everyone is so dedicated and we’re very fortunate that Andrew was able to receive the best possible treatment.

"We have a better understanding of different cancer types"

Gifts in Wills helped to fund the pioneering NIHR Centre for Molecular Pathology. The Centre brings clinicians and scientists together to better understand different types of cancer, and develop personalised treatments that improve the lives of patients at The Royal Marsden, across the UK and around the world.

Dr Lisa Thompson, Head of Clinical Genomics said:

Supporters of the Charity enable us to invest in leading-edge technology, which helps us to accelerate our research from the laboratory into the clinic, and enables us to offer a truly personalised approach for cancer patients everywhere.
