At present, there is no treatment or cure for CMT, and people spend their lives struggling with mobility and dexterity issues; in and out of hospitals for surgery or out patients appointments; children can be bullied at school for having “funny feet”, and people are more likely to have to retire early for work. So all we can do is support people now and ensure people can live as well as possible
Leaving a legacy to Charcot-Marie-Tooth UK will help people with CMT long into the future. It will allow people who’ve just been diagnosed to get the best possible information so that they can understand their condition, and move along with their lives. It will ensure that we can continue to support young people like those show in the photo above, to give them the tools and self-esteem/self-confidence to have a great life. It will protect people seeking advice and information from being left without support or advice.
It’s a wonderful feeling know that after your death, you will still be giving someone else the opportunity to get support and advice to cope with their CMT, just as I did when I was first diagnosed.
If you would like to know more, you can download our Fact Sheet on Legacies, or take advantage of the Co-operative Legal Service’s offer below. Or for a more informal chat about leaving a legacy, please contact us.
If you decide to leave a legacy or have already included Charcot-Marie-Tooth UK in your will, please contact us to let us know.
