Who do we help?

Blood cancers can affect anyone at any time, although they are much more common in adults than children.

We focus our support on the northern region, and help patients who are dealing with a wide range of blood cancers. The more common diseases are leukaemias, lymphomas, and myelomas. We also help support patients suffering from myelodysplasia and myeloproliferative diseases.

We are able to review grant applications from any adult haematological unit in the northern region – hospitals include Northern Centre for Cancer Care, North Tyneside Hospital, Wansbeck Hospital, North Tees, The Friarage, Hexham General, North Cumbria, James Cook, and Durham Hospital. Support can include investment in improving patient care or contributing towards staff development.

Haematology wards or haematology staff in need of funding are advised to visit our Patient Care and Education sections to learn more.

We also welcome applications from anyone conducting research into blood cancers, providing their study institute is based within the North of England.  For more information please visit our Research section.
