Leukaemia UK is a leading blood cancer charity. We support families affected by leukaemia, myeloma, lymphoma and other blood cancers.

  • Mission statement

    Leukaemia UK (until Nov 17 known as The Elimination of Leukaemia Fund) focuses on the treatment and cure of Leukaemia, Lymphomas and related blood cancers. We work with hospitals and clinicians to improve the care for people living with blood cancer and fund research into better, kinder ways of treating the disease.

    Leukaemia UK helps fund large projects, such as research centres and new wards, but never forgets that small things make a big difference too. We are pioneering the provision of dedicated emotional support for patients and families to enable them to better cope with their disease and treatments, and also to ensure they are on a pathway back to normal life after treatment. We also provide grants for individuals facing hardship during treatment.
