Publish Date: 16/6/2016

Thanks to generous community support, the Leukaemia Foundation is proud to host the sixth annual Sydney Blood Cancer Education Conference at the Rydges Parramatta on Saturday, June 25.

Designed to inform and empower people who have been impacted by a blood cancer diagnosis, the forum is a great chance to learn what’s new in the blood cancer landscape and includes talks by leading experts in their field – all free of charge.

Sharing the latest available information on diagnosis, treatment and recovery, there will also be afternoon sessions on disease-specific topics for AML, ALL, CML, CLL, Lymphoma, MDS, MPN, Amyloidosis, Waldenstrom’s and Multiple Myeloma. 

Snezana Djordjevic, Blood Cancer Support Manager, NSW/ACT has been involved in the education conference event since its inception in 2011 and holds it in high regard.

“The annual Sydney Blood Cancer Education Conference provides invaluable information for people and families,” said Snezana. “Delivered by a number of leading haematology specialists, the conference is a testament of the Leukaemia Foundation’s continued commitment to providing ongoing support and education to people diagnosed with a blood cancer and their families.

People who have attended previous years have been thrilled with their experience, what they have learned and the opportunity to ask lots of questions. The education conference has also provided a unique environment for people to meet others going through a similar blood cancer journey.
