Leaving a gift to the GI Cancer Institute in your Will and a legacy for future generations is a very personal and extraordinary decision to make.

There are many reasons why people choose to leave a bequest to the GI Cancer Institute. Each gift, whether large or small, makes a difference and enables cutting edge research into new treatments for patients with gastro-intestinal cancer.

“My reason to leave a gift in my Will to GI cancer research was very personal. My mother died of pancreatic cancer and my stepfather now has colon cancer.   Two GI cancers that have affected my family.  I have always thought about leaving something in my Will to an organisation, it is part of my Christian beliefs.  For me it was a normal thing to do. But, of course it does depend on the person’s circumstance and their worldview. It depends on whether you have practical considerations and whether you need to help children. But for me it is important to leave a gift in my Will to help the next generation.”    S Wong, NSW
