WAYS TO GIVE
In 2003 at least 1,700 women were diagnosed with the disease and 54 women under the age of 45 died of breast cancer in the West of Ireland in 2004.
The 5 year survival rate varies from 97% when diagnosed at an early stage to 21% when diagnosed at a later stage.
Your donations will help fund research into the behaviour of breast cancer and create effective treatments to combat it.
A gift of the remainder of the estate after all other bequests have been made and debts cleared is called a residuary bequest.
A gift of a fixed sum of money in your Will is called a pecuniary bequest. The value of pecuniary legacies will decrease over time, as the cost of living increases.
A particular named item left as a gift in your Will is known as a specific bequest - for example, a piece of jewellery.
A gift in your Will that depends upon the occurrence of an event which may or may not happen is known legally as a contingent bequest. An example is a bequest to a charity which applies only if other beneficiaries named in the Will die before the testator (person who made the Will).
