Our Online Blood Cancer Support Service

The Leukaemia Foundation’s Online Blood Cancer Support Service is designed to assist patients and carers with navigating blood cancer in a personalised way.

It is simple to use and credible, filled with up-to-date information curated by the Leukaemia Foundation. The Online Support Service is of benefit to anyone with any type of blood cancer, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

Optimised and accessible

The new service is free to use and optimised for any device, including phones, laptops and tablets. All you’ll need is an internet connection. There’s plenty of accessible content, including podcasts and closed captioned videos.

Shelley Bishop testimonial
The Leukaemia Foundation's Online Blood Cancer Support Service provided so many resources, information and assistance to help me navigate life after cancer treatment. When I was diagnosed with lymphoma, I had no idea where to look for support and information, as this was a totally new experience for me.

Ed Endicott testimonial
It was reassuring to access relevant information you knew was coming from a creditable, experienced source. Especially given the volume of ”other” information from Dr Google. The information gave me confidence and belief in the treatment I was given so that I was also mentally onboard with what was happening to me physically.

Barry Du Bois testimonial
The new Online Blood Cancer Support Service is so simple to use. From a patient’s perspective, It is easy to access at any time, with information that is easy to understand. Like lots of people with myeloma or any form of blood cancer, fatigue is a real issue. Both the learn module and the energy coach can help you manage it and the tips give you ideas on how to improve your wellbeing.

Christie Yu testimonial
As one can imagine, being diagnosed with cancer is a very abrupt and extensive change. Often the physical challenges are acknowledged, but in some ways, the psychological challenges can be even more difficult. Emotional resilience is so important at all stages of the cancer journey, from diagnosis to survivorship or even end of life care. The emotional resilience module will really help equip patients to manage their mental health, and identify at what point to seek additional help.
