If you support World Child Cancer, you have joined us in our vision for a world where every child with cancer has equal access to the best treatment and care. For over a decade, we have been doing our utmost to turn this vision into a reality and now operate in seven countries across four continents.
Writing a will is a way for you to ensure your life’s assets are distributed the way you would like. This helps your loved ones to avoid any unnecessary stresses during a difficult time but have you ever thought about giving the gift of life after death?
Leaving a gift in your will costs nothing in your lifetime, but it can make a huge difference to children with cancer in the future. Legacies allow us to plan for our future, and help us to meet the growing demand for our services.
‘Writing a will is vitally important in protecting the legacy you leave behind for your loved ones. By including World Child Cancer in your will, you could also support children with cancer across the world and increase their chances of survival.’ Dr. Jan Kohler
One of the medical successes of the last 30 years has been the amazing improvement in survival for children with cancer from little expectation of cure to around 80% cure, at least that is for the 20% of children who live in high income countries.
"Four out of five children live in developing countries where childhood cancer survival rates can be as low as 10%. World Child Cancer was created with the aim of reducing this inequality. One of the ways in which this is achieved is through volunteer medical professionals from established care centres in developed countries assisting their peers in developing countries where they are seeing increasing numbers of children with cancer. These programmes of support and short to medium term financial support in developing countries, is reducing deaths from cancer. By leaving a legacy you will ensure that ongoing work can continue where resources are reducing not improving." Professor Tim Eden
If we know about your legacy pledge it allows us to plan for the future to support those that need it most. As well as supporting the 300,000 children that develop cancer each year, by leaving a legacy to us in your will you will also become a World Child Cancer Change Maker.
