Blood cancers affect thousands of people in WA.
The word Leukaemia or Lymphoma continues to inspire fear in many. Lymphomas are amongst the commonest form of adult cancer in Western Australia. New treatments are becoming available with increasing rapidity but many challenges remain.
The Haematology Department at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and PathWest need your help to meet these challenges. The Charlies Leukaemia & Lymphoma Fund was created in January 1998 to raise money for Western Australian research into these diseases, including new drugs, new procedures, clinical trials and better ways of supplying existing treatment.
There are several cancers related to the blood and bone marrow for which research is ongoing and support is urgently needed. These include acute leukaemia, chronic myeloid leukaemia, chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, the lymphomas (including Hodgkin’s Disease) and multiple myeloma.
Your kind donation will be put to good use quickly and will help many West Australian’s living with these types of blood cancers.
