There are lots of ways you can do something legendary for Breast Cancer Now – whether it’s skydiving, trekking or running a marathon – but one legendary act that many people don’t know about is including a gift in your will to support our work.

Breast Cancer Now supports Remember a Charity Week

Making a will is the best way to make sure our loved ones are taken care of after we’re gone. And it’s also a great opportunity to remember the causes that matter to us most.

Whatever your age, background or financial situation, it’s straightforward to leave a gift in your will, and with Breast Cancer Now, you can feel confident that, large or small, your gift will help change the future for the better.

Every gift we receive helps fund the life-saving research we know is needed to reach the day where no woman dies of breast cancer. We’re already making incredible strides in understanding breast cancer risk and prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment.

But there’s still much more to be done to stop breast cancer spreading and becoming deadly – the stage of the disease known as secondary breast cancer.

A gift in your will could provide the long-term support this vital research needs, meaning fewer families have to face a future without the women they love.

Research shows that 35% of adults in the UK say they’d happily leave a gift in their will to charity, once family and friends had been provided for. But currently, just 7% do so.

That’s why Breast Cancer Now has joined forces with over 140 other charities to support Remember a Charity week, which runs 7 – 13 September 2015. Together, we are helping raise awareness that leaving a gift in your will is simple, easy and can make a lasting impact on the causes you support.

During this year’s Remember a Charity week, you too can become a living legend by leaving a gift in your will to Breast Cancer Now!

Taking care of your loved ones and your favourite charities is easier than you might think.
