Leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma are all types of blood cancer and they can develop in anyone, of any age, at any time. Another 35 Australians are diagnosed each and every day.
Although improved treatments and care are helping more people survive, sadly someone loses their life to blood cancer every two hours.
The Leukaemia Foundation is the only national charity dedicated to helping those blood cancer or related blood disorders survive and then live a better quality of life.
It exists only because of the generous and ongoing support of the Australian community.
By raising money for the Leukaemia Foundation you can make a difference by giving families fighting blood cancer the emotional and practical support they need. You will also fund critical medical research that will help more people beat their blood cancer.
Help local families beat blood cancer
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.
Thanks to its supporters, the Leukaemia Foundation is also able to provide counselling, comprehensive information, education and support, and financial assistance to help the 60,000 Australians who are currently living with a blood cancer.
Help Australian researchers beat blood cancer
Researchers funded by generous supporters of the Leukaemia Foundation are working tirelessly right now to discover safer and more effective treatments that will save lives and help people lead a better quality of life.
The charity’s $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.
