Blood Cancer Consumer Engagement Group
We’ve created a Blood Cancer Consumer Engagement Group for people living with blood cancer including caregivers and their loved ones.
You are viewing an invitation to join the Group assuming eligibility at this time. We have a few basic eligibility requirements to join this Group:
- You (or your loved one) have completed initial treatment 12 months ago or more
- If you (or your loved one) have been re-treated, this commenced 6 months ago or more
- If you (or your loved one) have not received treatment yet, you were diagnosed at least 12 months ago
- If you are joining as a bereaved loved one, it has been more than 12 months since you lost your loved one.
We’ve set up these guidelines so that people (or their loved one) who are going through active treatment, or people who are grieving or bereaved, can prioritise their health and wellbeing.
Click on the link below and fill out the confidential questionnaire to help us determine whether it’s appropriate for you to join the Group at this time.

Why set up a Consumer Engagement Group?
We know that by engaging with people living with blood cancer, we are reflecting best practices as a health organisation by incorporating the standards set forth by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Healthcare.
The Leukaemia Foundation also wants to cultivate the voice of people living with blood cancer in authentic ways. We believe there is enormous insight to be gained and problems to be solved by giving them an opportunity to share their lived experience, so that Leukaemia Foundation services can prosper and develop over time.
We are fulfilling our commitment to all our stakeholders by engaging people living with blood cancer in an organisation-wide improvement processes which include contributing to the planning, design, monitoring, delivery and evaluation of Leukaemia Foundation systems, policies, and procedures.
In addition, these opportunities extend to helping our research, fundraising, media, communication, business partnerships, advocacy and research teams do their job better by weaving the unique experience that each person holds into business proposals, media articles, podcasts, support programs and other projects. This allows critical insights from our blood cancer community to drive better outcomes for all stakeholders involved in this community, which includes health professionals, industry and relevant business cooperatives and people living with blood cancer themselves.
Your registration in this Group could also serve as a launchpad to serve in future roles with Leukaemia Foundation.
