I felt like I was falling from a cliff while my family was looking over – completely helpless.” Akheel Soltan
The Leukaemia Foundation’s Vision to Cure is being achieved by funding the best research. Decades of research have improved survival rates and treatment for people with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders. However, blood cancer remains the second biggest cause of cancer death in Australia, claiming a life every two hours - so ongoing research is vital.
Our Vision to Cure is expressed through our National Research Program. With the guidance of an independent panel of leading researchers and clinicians, we support cutting-edge research in Australian hospitals and research facilities to ensure priority funding for blood cancer research. We firmly believe that one day, everyone with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders can be cured.
