Giving in memory Losing someone that you love is a painful experience, filled with many emotions and we understand that it is extremely personal. At Heartburn Cancer UK we want to enable you to honour your loved one by recording lasting memories that we hope provide a small comfort and a place to reflect. Tribute Funds Creating a tribute fund in memory of someone special is one way to make a lasting memorial that can both celebrate a life and help to keep your loved ones memory alive. Many people find that donating to a relevant cause brings comfort to family and friends, along with the knowledge that contributions will be used to help others in a similar position. Your tribute fund will be personal to you and the memory of your loved one, meaning that you will choose how and when it is added to. All donations will serve as a lasting tribute as well as continuing to help us change the future for those suffering with persistent heartburn symptoms or diagnosed with Barrett's oesophagus and oesophageal cancer. How do tribute funds work? Once your fund has been created it can be added to at any time. Traditionally, people invite donations in memory of their loved one at a funeral service or a celebration of their life, but as the fund is a long standing tribute it can be used to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries or other family events. There is no limit as to how little or often you can add to your fund, it is yours to use as you wish.

Leaving a dedication We have also created a dedication page, which we hope will become a place that those who have lost loved ones can take a moment to reflect and share memories. There is a simple process which enables you to share a message or a story or to celebrate your loved ones life, together with a photo if you wish. This will be a lasting page where your dedication will remain. We ask for a donation when making your dedication. We are committed to changing the future so that fewer families lose loved ones to oesophageal cancer and all donations will be used to directly support our work. If you have any questions about tribute funds or our dedication page then please get in touch and we will be pleased to help.
