With your support, the Leukaemia Foundation ensures every Australian with blood cancer gets access to the trusted information, best-practice treatment and essential care they need.
Blood cancer is the second most diagnosed cancer and second most common cause of cancer-related deaths in Australia. There are no screening programs available for blood cancers, and there is no way to prevent blood cancer through lifestyle changes.
There are 110,000 people currently living with blood cancer in Australia and it’s projected to reach 235,000 by 2035.
Each year, more than 186 people in Canberra are diagnosed with blood cancer and sadly 70 Canberrans lose their life to blood cancer.
The Leukaemia Foundation supports Canberrans living with blood cancer to get access to:
- Information: trusted information and education to empower informed choice
- Treatment: best-practice treatment and the latest trials, tests and diagnostic tools
- Care: essential supportive care to improve quality of life. This includes specialised accommodation in the John James Village in Garran, close to Canberra Hospital. A home-away-from-home for patients, their carers and families to stay as long as they need, at no cost.
Jocelyn Raunjak was 36 weeks pregnant when she learned she had blood cancer last year. Forced to rush to an unfamiliar city for life-saving treatment, Jocelyn and her family were provided a home-away-from-home at the Leukaemia Foundation’s John James Accommodation Village in Canberra for the duration of Jocelyn’s treatment. Read more about Jocelyn’s story here.
This Hands Up for Canberra Giving Day on 9 March, you can help people like Jocelyn access the support and information they need to navigate a blood cancer diagnosis.
For every $1 donated, it will be matched up to $5,000!
