Your support in action
Thanks to your generosity, the Leukaemia Foundation website was full of information when Vanessa first Googled ‘lymphoma‘.
She saw the range of support services available and reached out for help with getting to her medical appointments.
Vanessa was put straight in touch with Emma from the Leukaemia Foundation’s Access and Navigation team.
“I cannot say enough about Emma. She was my guardian angel,” says Vanessa.
“I was starting to have panic attacks about how I was going to get there [to hospital]. It’s half an hour away. I can’t afford taxis. Emma made sure I got to treatment,” says Vanessa.
Your heartfelt support meant Emma was able to assist Vanessa with vouchers, while also connecting her with a council-run transport service.
“The Leukaemia Foundation service is above and beyond. Without it, I wouldn’t have been able to go [to treatment]. I really would have been in trouble.”
For Australians like Vanessa, your generosity and the support of our long-term transport partner Bridgestone make an incredible difference in people’s daily lives. Getting to treatment stress-free and without financial burden means people can focus on the most important thing – getting better.
