Please help us this Remember A Charity Week

Did you know that more than 60% of UK adults don’t have a valid Will in place?

This Remember A Charity Week, we are highlighting what a difference your legacy could make. Not only could it look after your loved ones after you are gone, but it could help transform and sustain the future of brain tumour research.

Lucy Savage has left a legacy to Brain Tumour Research in her Will after her four-year-old daughter Naomi was diagnosed with a high-grade brain tumour.

Naomi underwent three craniotomies and a “horrific” chemotherapy regime. Now 19, Lucy says she is “very proud” of how her daughter “gets on with life” despite living with ongoing effects from her brain tumour.

Lucy said: “Naomi is doing so well and we feel lucky compared to so many other families hit with a brain tumour diagnosis. She is pursuing her dream of working in film and television production and is doing a degree at Northumbria University, although she has regular MRI scans and the fear of regrowth is something we live with.

“Over the years we have raised more than £50,000 for Brain Tumour Research, but I have also left a Gift in my Will to provide hope that there will be many more brain tumour patients with positive outcomes in the future.”
