“It’s very important for us to come together with those affected by the loss of a loved one to leukaemia, or another blood cancer, not only on World Cancer Day but also all year round – which is why we’re always here to support everyone.
“We understand how important it is to provide care after someone passes and we have specialist groups and staff to do this.
“However, we cannot provide those services without the invaluable donations from all our fund-raisers which allows us to continue providing services for all, throughout their leukaemia journey.”
