The difference you'll make

30 Aug 2015

Without gifts in Wills from our generous supporters, we quite literally couldn’t do what we do. A gift in a Will, no matter the size, will change the lives of people affected by blood cancer - it could be the most important gift you’ve ever given.

Every 14 minutes, someone in the UK is given the news that they have blood cancer. In that instant, their lives are changed forever.

Since 1960, we’ve made incredible progress towards beating blood cancer. When we first started, barely 1 in 10 children survived the most common form of childhood cancer – acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Today, thanks to research funded by generous supporters like you, 9 in 10 children survive this disease.

But we can’t yet say this for every type of blood cancer. And some of the treatments patients have at the moment have harsh side effects, which can have a big impact on their lives.

Together, we can make sure that every blood cancer patient survives and can go on to live their life to the full.

Bloodwise doesn’t receive any government funding, and gifts in Wills, big and small, make up more than a third of our income every year. So without the gifts people like you leave in their Will, we simply couldn’t do what we do.

Your gift will transform lives: see it for yourself

If you’re thinking about leaving a gift in your Will, we’d love to meet you at one of our legacy events. We hold them in venues across the country, and you’ll be able to hear more about our work and the difference your gift would make.

If you decide to leave a gift in your Will, we want you to be able to see this in action. We’d love to invite you to visit one of our Centres of Excellence around the country. You’ll be able to speak with some of our dedicated researchers and see how your gift towards their ground-breaking research will change the lives of patients.

For more information about our legacy events and Centre of Excellence tours please get in touch or call 020 7504 2200 and ask to speak to our Legacies Manager.
