Improve the lives of people across Scotland by leaving a gift in your Will to Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland
“I couldn’t be here without gifts in Wills from caring people like you.”
Paula was just 29 years old when she had a stroke. As a young mum, instead of enjoying life with her family, Paula was left fighting for her life.
“When I eventually woke, I couldn’t move, and it was a struggle to speak. Even though I survived, I felt like I had lost a piece of myself,” explains Paula.
“I lost hugs with my two-year old son after my stroke. I lost our family walks on the beach every Sunday. I lost me.
“Some days I wanted life to just stop. I thought there was no future for me. I was so scared. But after time, I found strength. It took years, and there were so many setbacks, frustrations and battles.
“I’ve managed to rebuild my life, and that’s why I’m now so proud to work for Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland helping survivors like me. But I’m only able to do that because of donations from caring people.”
Paula knows first-hand just how vital such a lasting legacy can be and what a difference it can make to people’s lives.
“A gift in your will is a gift to every recovery, every moment shared, every hug with your loved ones, every step forward, every glimmer of hope for anyone in Scotland who is affected by chest, heart and stroke conditions,” she adds.
“For me, your kindness means I can hug my son again, read him a bedtime story and feel like me again. Your kindness gave me back my life, my family.
“A gift like this will mean people can continue to make lasting moments in the future.”
No matter how much you give, a gift in your Will means that we can continue to support survivors and their families now and in the future.
You can make a difference and ensure your legacy of kindness and generosity lives on.
We appreciate that this is an incredibly generous gesture and is one that will mean a lot to the people that we support. If you want to discuss this further – such as letting us know if there are specific areas or services you’d like your donation to go to – please get in touch. We’re happy to answer any questions that you and your loved ones may have.
