Gift in your Will

Thank you for considering leaving a gift in your Will to James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer.  Your gift has a positive impact for future generations by helping us to continue our work fighting kidney cancer and supporting patients.

Kidney cancer is currently the eighth most common cancer in adults in the UK. More than 10,000 people were diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2011, that’s 28 people each day. As the UK’s leading specialist kidney cancer charity, we focus on reducing the harm caused by kidney cancer for today’s patients and their families and also by reducing its prevalence and impact for future generations.

To achieve this, we work closely with patients, nurses and doctors to identify patients’ needs and we deliver professional and educational programmes to ensure these needs are met. We also deliver and support awareness programmes that are aimed at changing at-risk lifestyle factors and encouraging an earlier diagnosis, which makes a significant difference on survival rates.
