When Malcolm Edwards updated his will to include a gift to Cancer Council NSW many years ago, he was thinking of his children and grandchildren.
“We have a joke about the small portion of inheritance they’re losing, but it’s really a gift to them. I’m not a wealthy man by any means, but I know every little bit helps to take us a step closer to a cancer-free world and that’s something powerful to leave behind for your kids,” Malcolm said.
Now, Malcolm’s gift means so much more to him, following his own cancer diagnosis of two carcinoid tumours in 2007. More recently, Malcolm’s wife of 50 years, Robin, has also faced
her battle after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012.
Malcolm hopes that by leaving a gift to Cancer Council NSW in his will, his children and grandchildren will be protected for the future.
It’s really a gift to your loved ones
“I am leaving money to Cancer Council NSW when I die. I’m no scientist, but I know cancer does terrible things to people, and this is something I can contribute.”
