Mission to Care
Leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma can develop in anyone, of any age, at any time. Often with little warning and in acute cases, may require treatment within 24 hours of diagnosis. It turns lives upside down overnight.
Families from rural or regional Australia often need to quickly relocate to major cities to be closer to treatment centres. This is usually for extended periods of time.
Relocation is particularly traumatic as it often occurs after diagnosis, resulting in patients and families adjusting to their new circumstances without the benefit of established local support networks.
Combined with costly medical bills and loss of income, many families find themselves in financially crippling circumstances whilst coping with the shock and emotional turmoil associated with the diagnosis.
On average, treatment of haematological cancers lasts for eight months but can continue for years.
This is where we step in, providing personalised support and care for patients and families right throughout their journey – from diagnosis, treatment to recovery. This support is provided by an extensive team of trained cancer nurses and allied health professionals and reaches every town and community across Australia .
Support services include:
- counselling and support
- disease-specific information materials
- education programs and support groups
- access to 'home away from home' accommodation close to major treatment centres
- transport to and from treatment
- practical assistance
All services are provided free of charge to patients and families.
Vision to Cure
We are committed to ongoing funding for vital research into the causes, epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment, psychosocial impact and ultimately cures for leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders.
Each year, the Leukaemia Foundation aims to provide at least $3 million in research funding.
We receive no ongoing government funding and rely on the generous support of our corporate supporters and the community.
