Vision to Cure

Each year, we invest millions of dollars in our National Research Program to improve treatments and find cures. Research takes place in leading Australian hospitals and institutions, with a focus on research with the potential to improve quality of life and survival for people with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders. To ensure that the best quality research in the areas of greatest need is supported, our program is steered by an independent panel of leading Australian researchers and clinicians who generously volunteer their time and expertise.

Mission to Care

When blood cancer changes the lives of thousands of Australian families every year, we are ready to help them to face the challenges ahead. Many simple aspects of life become complex when a person is diagnosed. Our services help to reduce the burden on the individual and their family, so that they can focus on their treatment and the things they enjoy. All support is provided free of charge.
