Amanda on her decision to leave a gift
It's the little things in life that mean the most. Following the death of her mum to a brain tumour in 2015, Amanda and her husband updated their Wills to include The Brain Tumour Charity. This simple act of kindness not only helped ensure future investment into brain tumour research, but enabled Amanda to rest assured that she has committed a long-term pledge to a cause she believes strongly in.
“My mum passed away from an inoperable brain tumour only seven months after diagnosis. It was awful to watch her deteriorate so rapidly and see an independent and intelligent woman so helpless after just two weeks. Having initially lost all her sight, mum became virtually paralysed, unable to swallow or speak.
“My husband and I finally got round to making our Wills after mum died and I was horrified to learn how little funding goes into brain tumour research. Between us we decided to leave a percentage of our joint estate to three national charities connected to cancer because I want to find answers to why this cruel disease affects people, to find cures, and to help those with brain tumours have a more fulfilling life while they can.
“I felt strongly that The Brain Tumour Charity benefited from this legacy because there seemed to be so little known about brain tumours and I want other people to have treatment options. Sadly, my mum did not have access to any treatment and the wait for biopsy results from diagnosis was so long. If more is known about different types of brain tumours, more than be done to help those in need so research and support is vital".
