Did you know almost one third of the money we raise comes from people leaving Macmillan a gift in their will.
When David was diagnosed with throat cancer his world was turned upside down. Fortunately his Macmillan physiotherapist, Kathy, was there to support him.
‘I had a very full life. But after my second chemotherapy session I stopped going out because I was losing my hair, I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t swallow. I was very depressed. I felt a failure.’
‘Kathy sat down on the bed and started chatting as if she’d known me for years. She was everything. Her qualifications, her ability to do her job are second to none. But add to that her personality and her ability to understand a person.
‘I will always, always be in debt to Kathy and Macmillan, always. And I mean that. I’ve left Macmillan something in my will,’ explains David, who’s now in recovery. ‘That’s very, very important for me because of what they’ve done for me and the people coming behind. It’s how it should be: you should support society if you can.’
Like David, leaving a donation to Macmillan in your will you’ll be helping us give people the emotional, practical and financial support they need. So when someone’s facing a difficult time, they can start to feel more in control again.
Anything you leave Macmillan goes a long way to funding our essential support.
