Seven out of ten Americans will die this year without a leaving a will, which means that state governments will decide for them how their assets should be distributed. Make sure that your will reflects your dedication to the battle against cancer by indicating a special gift to the Cancer Research Foundation.
You can make a difference by including a simple clause in your will expressing your desire to make a contribution. Possible phrasing might include:
"I give and bequeath to the Cancer Research Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation located in Chicago, Illinois:
for the uses and purposes of said corporation."

The Cancer Research Foundation has focused attention on cancer and raised money for life-giving research. We...pay tribute to the scientists who have dedicated themselves to finding a cure and to meet the young researchers who are the next generation of fighters against this disease. The message we send today is that those who suffer from cancer are not alone and that together we can work toward a solution."Richard M. Daley
