Who we are
Did you know every single day 34 Australians are diagnosed with a blood cancer? The number is growing but you can help.
The Leukaemia Foundation is the only Queensland charity dedicated to improving the lives of patients with all types of blood cancers, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. We want more people to survive a blood cancer diagnosis and to go on to live a full life.
We are committed to supporting initiatives and research that improve health outcomes for blood cancer patients, including improved access to new drugs that may be more effective than those currently available.
In an Australian first, we have recently established our Trials Enabling Program, which will give those with blood cancer access to promising new drugs currently being tested abroad.
We also provide free support services to help blood cancer patients and their families including:
» Somewhere to call home during treatment in Brisbane or Townsville
» Transport to and from medical appointments
» Information and Webinars
» Fit to Thrive exercise programs
» Financial assistance
» Support groups and education programs
The Leukaemia Foundation doesn’t receive direct government funding and relies on the generosity of the community to support our vision to cure blood cancers and support patients when they need it most.
So show some love, sweat and tears and help beat blood cancers.
