We’re a community dedicated to beating blood cancer by funding research and supporting those affected. Since 1960, we’ve invested over £500 million in blood cancer research, transforming treatments and saving lives.
We are Blood Cancer UK, and we want to change the world for all blood cancer patients. Every year we stop more people dying of blood cancer and our researchers are even working to stop people developing blood cancer in the first place.
We’re the UK’s specialist blood cancer charity and our vision is clear: we’re here to beat blood cancer and we’ve been working to do this since 1960.
We fund world-class research; provide information and support to patients and their loved ones; and raise awareness of blood cancer. Since 1960 we have invested more than £500 million in blood cancer research in the UK. Where we’ve invested, survival rates and quality of life have improved.
We’re proud to say that UK blood cancer research leads the world, thanks to the money we’ve been able to invest because of our supporters and fundraising. But we still have so much more to do: blood cancer is the 5th most common cancer and sadly it is the 3rd biggest cancer killer in the UK claiming more lives than either breast or prostate cancer.
We improve the lives of blood cancer patients with cancers such as leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma because we believe everyone should be able to live their life to the full. We’ve been working to beat blood cancer for over 50 years and we won’t stop until we do. Be a part of our story and help us change the world.
Our Presidents and Honorary Presidents are a group of dedicated supporters who are extremely passionate about the work we do as a charity, and continuously support Blood Cancer UK in raising awareness of blood cancer.
