More than 50 per cent of West Australians don't have a Will, potentially leaving their loved ones with unnecessary financial, legal and emotional stress and uncertainty when they're gone.
Cancer Council WA and Guide Dogs WA are partnering with Groven Legal to offer a professionally prepared standard Will* for just $132.
In this no obligation service, we encourage you to think of your family and friends first and then consider including a gift in your Will to Cancer Council WA.
If you or someone you know would like to take advantage of this great offer, please make an appointment by calling 08 9212 4333, or visit us on the day.
The difference you can make
As a community-funded organisation we rely on donations to help us fund critical cancer research, such as that of Professor Daniel Galvão.
Professor Galvão's prostate cancer research has potential to save lives of cancer patients living in regional areas and was made possible through a gift left in a Will.
"Weight gain from hormone therapy is a common problem for men who are receiving treatment for prostate cancer," Professor Galvão said.
"To combat this, specialists have been delivering a clinic-based exercise and nutrition program which has proven to be effective in reducing fat mass by more than 3kg in overweight and obese prostate cancer patients.
"The problem is that while good results have been achieved for patients able to attend the clinic-based program, patients in regional, rural and remote settings across WA, or those unable to afford them have been missing out, which is why we're looking at whether telehealth does an equally good job for delivering this important intervention."
A gift as small as one percent of your estate makes a huge impact and helps Cancer Council WA continue our work funding cancer research, delivering prevention programs and providing vital support for all West Australians impacted by cancer.
