Blood cancer is scary. It can develop in anyone, at any age, and forces families to drop everything to begin life-saving treatment.

This treatment can last for many months – sometimes even years.

Faced with an uncertain future, simple things like how to pay the bills, who to call for advice and even how to get to the hospital can become an ongoing struggle.

Your fundraising is powerful. This is the difference you’ll make...

Accommodation during treatment

This year, 750 rural and regional families will need somewhere to stay during treatment. Your fundraising covers the cost of home-away-from-home accommodation near hospital for as long as they need it.

Support at every stage

Your hard work will mean that a family facing blood cancer is not alone in their journey. By fundraising, a blood cancer support specialist will be there to care for a family struggling with the shock of a diagnosis, the anxiety of treatment and sometimes grief.

Research that saves lives

Your fundraising will help fund brilliant blood cancer scientists to further the medical research that uncovers faster diagnoses and better treatments. This research saves lives.

Four-year-old Arianna’s life was turned upside down when she was diagnosed with blood cancer.

“We had to decide if we were splitting the family up pretty much immediately,” remembers her mum, Bonnie. “Not to mention, I was five months pregnant with our third child and our oldest son, Oren (six) was in school.”

Living in regional Queensland, Arianna’s family were offered an apartment at one of the Leukaemia Foundation Patient Accommodation Villages in Brisbane.

Thanks to vital funds raised by community supporters, their family was able to stay together and access the support services they needed.

Nine months later, Arianna and her family were able to return home in time for Christmas, with Ari in maintenance treatment and ready to start kindy in the new year.

“It was brilliant, there are no words to describe how grateful we were to be able to have a place to call home while Ari underwent her treatment,”
said Bonnie.
