Each year, Leukaemia Foundation (LF) helps more than 750 families from regional and rural Australia by providing free accommodation to access life-saving treatment at major hospitals and a transport service helping thousands get to their medical appointments.
LF also provides counselling, patient information, education, support programs and financial assistance to help the 60,000 Australians currently living with a blood cancer and is committed to research that improve health outcomes for the future.
The Leukaemia Foundation has two primary objectives, to:
- support people living with blood cancer and their families through the provision of free services, information, education and resources to help their quality of life
- conduct or foster ground-breaking research into the cause, cure, therapy and/or eﬀects of blood cancers like leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other blood diseases like myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN).
