James Crofts Hope Foundation Inc.
Leaving a bequest

The James Crofts Hope Foundation would appreciate deeply if you remember us in your will.

Should you wish to be remembered - the James Crofts Hope Foundation will maintain a page with acknowledgement of your contribution and your life story, with a picture. If that is your wishes.

Our need is great for such loving bequests.

Remember that:

$20/fortnight would finance a monthly support group meeting

$50/fortnight would enable home and hospital visits

$100/fortnight would finance a monthly newsletter

$500/fortnight would finance a research project.

$2000/fortnight would fund a full time employee.

$2000 would finance a Brain Tumour Expo annually in which medical experts and allied health professionals would give their time to address an audience of those seeking information on Brain Tumours with the most up to date information, and advancement news in medical treatments for terminal ill people with Brain Tumours, and survivors.

$3,000 would finance desperately needed medication not covered by the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. i.e. Avastin currently costs $12,000 of which we provide support with a contribution of $3,000.

$6,000 would finance an internship for a promising PHD Researcher on a Brain tumour specific research project.

$50,000 would finance one car which could be used to visit those terminally ill with Brain Tumour at home, or transport people to and from clinic who have difficulties getting around, and visit those in country areas who feel isolated.

$2 Million dollars will finance the establishment of a self funding, University of Western Australia Professorial Chair in Brain Tumours by the James Crofts Hope Foundation which will significantly contribute to the research into Brain Tumours and assist in the development of a research Centre of excellence for specifically Brain Tumours which have a terminal prognosis.

Any size donations are also desperately needed for supporting terminally ill cancer patients in necessitous circumstances who otherwise would not get the help that they and their families need.
