Leave a Legacy Gift...

Legacies are an important source of income for GIST Cancer UK, helping to fund research into this rare cancer and ensuring our good work continues. If you are thinking of writing a Will, we are happy to help but if you already have a Will and would like to include a gift to GIST Cancer UK (sometimes called a legacy), there may not be any need to rewrite your Will. After honouring your loved ones first, the donation can be as small or large as you like - every gift makes a big difference and helps GIST Cancer UK. Thank you.
