One in eight of the children and young people with cancer we help are supported thanks to gifts left in Wills.
Imogen was diagnosed with cancer when she was four-years-old, after developing an ache and a lump in her stomach. Mum Miranda said, "The moment of diagnosis was a complete shock. It felt like falling off a cliff."
Treatment started straight away and Imogen had eight weeks of chemotherapy and 10 days of radiotherapy. It was tough for her but Laura, her CLIC Sargent Play Specialist really helped Imogen understand her treatment.
"Imogen was able to be so brave because of the help Laura gave her. She was calm and she would do everything she could to get it right. I don't know how they do what they do. They manage to make it [such a] shared relationship of trust with the child."
"When your child is diagnosed with cancer you learn to live each day and and appreciate it."
Imogen is doing well now. Miranda says: "We are in a place now where we are appreciating the little happy times. They are what it's all about, like dancing around in the kitchen or playing together. Those are the important ones."
Why leave a gift in your Will?
- Currently, we can only help two out of three children and young people with cancer. With a gift in your Will, you can help us to plan for a future where every child and young person with cancer who needs our support, can have it.
- Just as gifts in Wills pledged in the past are supporting our work today, gifts pledged today could help us to be there in the future too.
- A gift in your Will is an inspiring way to show your support for young lives against cancer in the future. By doing this you will be helping to ensure that CLIC Sargent is here fighting for young people against cancer often at a time when they feel they can’t. You will be amazing!
"By leaving a sum in my Will I feel like I am at least doing something to help."
Michael, remembered CLIC Sargent in his Will.
