Why I left a gift in my Will

Thanks to our supporters, The Royal Marsden can change the lives of countless cancer patients every year. Find out what inspires them to leave a gift in their Will to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

I am proud to have left a gift in my Will to the Charity. I wanted to help The Royal Marsden carry out research in the future; something that is now more important than ever.

Help fund future breakthroughs

In 2013, Keith was diagnosed with myeloma, an incurable but treatable bone marrow cancer. The following year he received a successful stem cell transplant at The Royal Marsden. Keith is carefully monitored and has a new treatment plan that is helping to manage his cancer.

Everyone has been wonderful throughout my treatment, but at The Royal Marsden they were exceptional. They saved my life.

I wanted to help the hospital carry out more research in the future so I decided to leave a gift in my Will to help transform the lives of cancer patients. My gift was a way of saying thank you.

"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.
