It is projected at approximately 2500 Victorians will be diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma this year; the equivalent of one every hour. It is estimated that every two hours, someone loses their life to one of these diseases.
The Foundation's free support services includes information and resources, education and support programs, transportation to and from treatment, ‘home away from home' accommodation close to major hospitals, practical assistance and emotional support.
The Leukaemia Foundation does not receive any ongoing government funding and relies generously on the community to help us continue providing our services to our patients and their families free of charge.
This is why the Ritchies Community Benefits Card is a fabulous way for the community to help those Victorians living with Blood Cancers.
It's so easy to do, simply nominate the Leukaemia Foundation as your charity of choice and present your card for scanning every time you shop at a Ritchie's store and remember by doing this you certainly are making a difference in the lives of those people living with blood cancers.
