The Leukaemia Foundation volunteers are crucial to helping us achieve our goals.

They have also helped raise much needed funds for research and patient support.
Many volunteers have been personally touched by leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or a related disorder. However, many others just enjoy having fun within the Leukaemia Foundation 'family' while at the same time knowing that their contribution will have a significant impact.
We would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for your tireless work, energy, support and passion for the Leukaemia Foundation and our patients and families. Your service to the community is invaluable.
