HOW GIFTS IN WILLS HELP CANCER RESEARCH
Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia is a type of blood cancer most often diagnosed in children and young people. Many people with this disease do survive, but successful treatment depends on predicting the risk of the cancer coming back and planning treatment based on this risk.
In Newcastle, Professor Anthony Moorman developed a more precise mathematical method for determining a person’s risk of the disease returning. This method is being used as part of a clinical trial to help guide doctor’s treatment decisions. People with a higher risk are given more treatment while saving others from unnecessary treatment and the associated side effects.
This research could lead to children and young people getting personalised treatment for this blood cancer, improving survival and having a huge impact on quality of life.
This is only one of the projects you could contribute to by leaving a gift in your Will to Cancer Research UK.
Gifts in Wills breathe life into researchers’ work by funding over a third of their life-saving research. Legacies enable long-term research projects that allow scientists to achieve breakthroughs every day. Each breakthrough inspires the next, leading us to a world where everybody can lead longer, better lives, free from the fear of cancer.
As the world’s leading Cancer Research charity, Cancer Research UK are at the forefront of the global fight against cancer, bringing together millions of people who share their determination to beat it.
In the past 40 years, cancer survival has doubled in part thanks to Cancer Research UK’s pioneering research, funded by the generosity of their supporters. Cancer Research UK wants to accelerate progress and see 3 in 4 people surviving their cancer by 2034. None of this will be possible without the help of their supporters.
1 in 2 people will get cancer in their lifetime*. All of us can support the research that will beat it.
