Gifts in Wills, whatever the size, make a big difference
“To me, it will be a tangible way of saying a final thank you to an organization that has helped me continue my life following my saddest of days.”
A gift in your Will helps SUDEP Action to continue to support those bereaved by epilepsy and enables those living with epilepsy to access potentially life-saving tools and information.
Why make a Will?
By making a Will you will ensure your estate is divided according to your wishes. If you do not have a will and have no surviving family, your entire estate will go to the state.
Making a Will is easy. For a small fee, a qualified legal professional can do this with you and ensure that your estate is inherited by your chosen beneficiaries, including charities. We advise that you consider taking independent advice from a qualified legal professional before making or amending your Will.

Thinking about writing or updating your Will can feel daunting, so to help take the pressure off, SUDEP Action has been working with an expert in writing and administering Wills to help you answer some important questions.

Why I am leaving a gift in my Will to SUDEP Action
“When my wife Sandie and I lost our youngest daughter Becky (11) in May 2004 to SUDEP, our world fell apart. But, something inside keeps you going and something ‘outside’ helped that process. The ‘outside’ I speak of was SUDEP Action. The charity helped us through our darkest days and provided a cathartic channel along which we ventured, with trepidation at first and then wholeheartedly. We have attended charity gatherings and have been involved in many fundraising events in memory of Becky. Towards the end of 2009, I was invited to join the Charity’s Board of Trustees, an opportunity which I was delighted to accept.
We are all mortal and I decided some time ago that when I pass on, I wanted to leave a bequest to benefit the Charity. To me, it will be a tangible way of saying a final thank you to an organization that has helped me continue my life following my saddest of days.”
