Leaving a gift to Guy's Cancer
'I’m leaving a gift in my will to Guy’s Cancer because I want to transform lives.'
Alison Fielding has been treated under Guy’s Cancer for four years. Thanks to the care of the urology, oncology and cardiology teams at Guy’s and St Thomas’, she is living a fulfilling life for longer than she previously thought possible.
Alison has made the wonderful decision of leaving a gift in her will to Guy’s Cancer.
'I was referred to Mr Tim O’Brien in Guy’s urology team. He offered me treatment of removing the primary tumour to reduce the burden on my body. As well as the normal risk for this operation, the poor condition of my heart made it an even higher risk choice.
'I was feeling “written off” when I was first diagnosed, so it was refreshing to be given an opportunity. I was helped to understand the risks and possible benefits and to make plans for any complications.'
'I survived and have thrived in the subsequent four years. I take a drug to slow the progression of the remaining cancer which, whilst it has some nasty side-effects, has not stopped me living life to the full.
'We all know that tragedy can happen to anyone at any time, so please do something about one thing you can control and make updating or making your will a priority.
‘It gives me peace of mind to know that my wishes will be carried out after my death and that I can make a real difference to the thousands of people with urological cancers that will come after me.'
