How your support is inspiring others to give!

When the generosity of Leukaemia Foundation supporters helped provide emergency accommodation and the trusted support of Blood Cancer Support Coordinators to the Hughes family, they wanted to find a special way to say thank you.

Sisters Courtney, Kate and Anneliese were so grateful for the kindness of supporters that they were inspired to give back to the blood cancer community. They wanted to help others feel as supported as they do, while 30-year-old Courtney is undergoing blood cancer treatment.

Knowing first-hand just how valuable this personalised support is for families like theirs, all three sisters recently took part in Dry July to fund more Blood Cancer Support Coordinators across the country.

“The Leukaemia Foundation are the angels that softened the blow for me. We didn’t know what we were in for and the help we have been given is amazing.”

“Dry July has been a positive way for us to give other families facing blood cancer the support we know makes such a difference.”

The Leukaemia Foundation is proud to be a major beneficiary of the Dry July campaign. Thank you Dry July Foundation – and dry Aussies like the Hughes sisters – for funding our Australia-wide network of Blood Cancer Support Coordinators.
