We’ve teamed up with experts to offer a free will writing service, giving you the chance to draft or update your will at no cost. It’s important to have a will in place to ensure that your final wishes for your assets are honored and to minimize confusion and stress for your loved ones during a difficult time. Leukaemia Care will cover the cost of writing or revising a basic single or joint will.
Our partnership with two specialists provides a convenient and cost-free option for writing or amending your will. With expert guidance, you can have a well-written will without any financial burden. Although there’s no obligation to include Leukaemia Care in your will, we hope you’ll consider supporting people living with leukaemia by making a donation. Choose the option that suits you best, as both services are offered free of charge.
We advise all of our patients to use our free will service regardless of their age or the size of their estate. A will is a legal document that specifies what should happen to a person’s assets (property, money and possessions) after their death. It allows a person to make decisions about how they want their assets to be distributed, rather than leaving it to the laws of the country to determine who inherits your belongings. If you have children under the age of 18, you can also specify who you would like to care for them or make decisions about their care in your absence. It also gives you peace of mind that no matter what, your thoughts and feelings have been captured within a legally binding document.
