At Leukaemia UK we fund world-class research and care.
We are at the forefront of research to determine the causes of leukaemia and blood cancer, to introduce safer, more effective treatments as fast as possible and ultimately, to find a cure. Thanks to research, leukaemia survival rates are improving and has more than quadrupled in the last 40 years in the UK. But we can’t slow down. Every day 27 people are diagnosed with leukaemia and sadly 13 people every day will lose their fight to leukaemia.
Our life-saving work is funded entirely by the generosity of our supporters, so every step we make towards beating leukaemia and blood cancer is thanks to you.
