About the Leukaemia Foundation
The Leukaemia Foundation is the only organization in Australia committed to helping to support the 60,000 Australians currently living with a blood cancer.
Every day, another 35 people are told they have blood cancer, plunging them and their families into a world of grueling treatments and fearful uncertainty.
Although research is improving survivial, sadly an Australian loses their life to blood cancer every two hours. In fact, blood cancers, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma claim more lives than breast cancer and melanomas.
In South Australia funds help to support the Bridgestone Australian Leukaemia Foundation Patient Village in Lightsview.
Since opening in December 2013 the 15 unit, purpose built facilities has provided more than 15,000 nights of free accommodation to regional patients and their families forced to relocate to Adelaide for life saving treatment.
The village is also home to the amazing transport fleet that takes patients to vital medical appointments. Patients all over Adelaide use this service driven by a crew of passionate volunteers.
Since 2013 the transport service has driven more than 900,000 kilometres – the equivalent of 22 times around the world.
The foundation also offers patient support services, disease specific information, support programs, financial assistance, and emotional support.
