When our supporters make the choice to help us with a legacy we can continue to make a difference to the way cancer is researched and treated both here in the UK and across the world. Together, we’re helping future generations benefit from the very best The Royal Marsden can offer.

How legacies help

By supporting The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity through a gift in your Will, you will help play a vital role in funding the essential work the hospital does for cancer patients each year. Thanks to supporters like you, we have made real progress in cancer treatment and care in recent years, and have funded projects such as:

  • The West Wing Clinical Research Centre was entirely funded by legacies and opened in 2014 for patients on clinical trials - it includes a dedicated on-site laboratory.
  • The Oak Centre for Children and Young People is based in the heart of our Sutton hospital, offering young patients the best care in comfortable surroundings.
  • The da Vinci Robot, a pioneering surgical robot that improves accuracy during surgery. We’ve now treated 1,500 patients from across the UK.
  • The Centre for Molecular Pathology brings leading scientists together under one roof, so new discoveries can quickly be converted into better ways to diagnose and treat cancer.
