Funding the future
Our work at Action is driven by the belief that the diseases that devastate the lives of so many of our children can be beaten. We continue to tackle the challenges that disease and disability present, by funding some of the best medical research in the world.
By including a gift for Action in your Will you can play a part in the medical advances of the future, helping to save and transform lives. Your gift could help find the answers that will change the world for future generations of children.
How a gift in your will could save lives
Aiden suffered from a shortage of oxygen at birth and was whisked away to the intensive care unit where the team began to reduce his body temperature to protect him from brain damage.
Felix was diagnosed with high risk, stage four neuroblastoma aged just four and tragically lost his life after two years of gruelling treatment.
For Vicki and husband Adam, hearing the sound of their baby’s laughter is incredibly precious, since Sophia was born at just 26 weeks weighing 2lb 5oz, after Vicki experienced severe pregnancy complications.
Elijah was born extremely prematurely at 25 weeks and three days, weighing just 823g and, sadly, lived for just 37 days.
What a gift in your Will could achieve
A gift in your will could unlock a future medical breakthrough, hold the key to a cure or treatment for a childhood illness, or simply make day-to-day life easier for children suffering illness or living with a disability.
Gifts left to Action will fund only the very best research most likely to have an impact. Our Scientific Advisory Panel and external reviewers made up of world-class medical researchers ensures that we focus our funds on the best doctors and researchers in children’s hospitals, specialist units and universities across the UK.
