The Leukaemia Foundation is thrilled to be a nominated beneficiary in the 2018 Dry July fundraising campaign.
Since 2008, Dry July has raised more than $30 million to support cancer services across Australia and New Zealand.
Dry July challenges you to go alcohol-free in July and ask family and friends to sponsor you and make a donation.
This year, participants can sign up and choose to fundraise for the Leukaemia Foundation, and funds raised will be supporting our accommodation services, offered free to rural and regional families when they need to travel to capital cities for blood cancer treatment.
Families like Melena’s.
When 37-year-old mum Melena Roughana was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in March last year, she had no idea where her cancer journey would take her. Neither did she know where she would stay when forced to relocate to Adelaide for life-saving treatment.
Melena and her family lived five hours away from the nearest oncology treatment hospital.
That’s where the Leukaemia Foundation stepped in, giving her family a home free-of-charge at the Bridgestone Australia Leukaemia Foundation Village in Adelaide whilst Melena underwent the fight for her life.
You can help so many more families when they need help the most by signing up to Dry July.
No one asks for blood cancer, so we’re asking you to help by making this small sacrifice.
