Your blood is remarkable.
But too many Australians are living with the devastating impact of blood cancer.
Our shared cause
Your blood really is a remarkable thing. It keeps you alive by giving your body what it needs, taking away what it doesn’t and fighting off infection.
But more than 135,000 people in Australia are living with the devastating impact of blood cancer and it’s one of the biggest causes of cancer death.
It’s a cancer of your blood and immune systems, preventing them from doing what they need to keep you alive and healthy.
Blood cancer develops in the places of your body where blood is made, but its exact cause is unknown.
A range of things affect someone’s chance of surviving blood cancer and it can be incurable.
