A gift in your will towards a cancer free future continues the love and generosity you have shown in your lifetime even after you are gone.
It’s a wonderful thing to be remembered for.
It costs you nothing in your lifetime to include hope for a cancer free future in your will. Marj has.
Marj has included a gift to Cancer Council NSW in her will.
She chose Cancer Council NSW for her gift for a reason; she and her family have experienced the impact of cancer first hand.
Marj has had cancer twice – breast cancer, then myeloid lymphoma.
Two of her children have had bowel cancer.
And 2 of her 3 siblings have died from cancer.
“My family know all too well what cancer is. We are survivors. We all need to look after ourselves and fund more research so there are more survivors.”
Marj volunteers with Cancer Council, and the gift she has included in her will is a way to continue this contribution even after she’s gone.
“I decided to leave a gift in my will as I know that money helps research and I know that without money, they can’t do research. So it was simple really.” Marj, a cancer survivor and volunteer who has included a gift to Cancer Council NSW in her will.
You don’t have to be wealthy to include a gift in your will.
”I always say if you can’t give now, you can leave a gift after you go, so write it in your will. No matter how small, we can all do something. Finding a cure costs money.”
Marj, a cancer survivor and volunteer who has included a gift to Cancer Council NSW in her will.
Every gift helps – large or small.
In fact even a tiny percentage after all your other choices have been made will make a real difference.
You just need a desire to leave a lasting impact of the values and standards you have shown in life.
You will make a difference.
To give you an idea of just how much difference you can make, gifts in wills represent almost one third of Cancer Council NSW’s income. These funds are vital to the research that is critical to achieving the cancer free future we all want.
Huge progress is being made.
Thanks to gifts from people like you the world’s first cervical cancer vaccine was developed right here in Australia.
As a result, it’s estimated that by 2035 in Australia, 2000 cervical cancer deaths will have been avoided and that cervical cancer will effectively be eliminated as a result of prevention.
That’s a big achievement. It just shows what an impact you can have.
“Finding a cure all costs money and without it we can’t fund research. You don’t have to be wealthy, but I believe we can all give in some way, either volunteering, donating or leaving a gift in your will.” Marj, a cancer survivor and volunteer who has included a gift to Cancer Council NSW in her will.
