The Leukaemia Foundation is the only national charity dedicated to helping those with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders survive and then live a better quality of life. Sadly someone loses their life to blood cancer every two hours and unfortunately we lost a loved one to lymphoma just this year.
We’ve experienced firsthand the absolute devastation blood cancer can have on a family and on a person’s daily life. We’ve also experienced firsthand the unwavering support of the Leukaemia Foundation which is why we are fundraising through our application and events. Each year, the Leukaemia Foundation helps more than 750 families from regional and rural Australia by providing free accommodation in our capital cities so they can access life-saving treatment at major hospitals.
Their $38m cancer research program has been running for more than a decade and finds the causes of blood cancer and improves the way people are diagnosed and then treated. Your support will also ensure the Leukaemia Foundation can continue to give those impacted by blood cancer a strong voice, advocating for change and ensuring all Australians who need them have easy access to the very best blood cancer treatments.
