Fundraising

The Leukaemia Foundation continues to support the blood cancer community in Mackay and across Australia.

In 2022 Leukaemia Foundation’s fight for people living with blood cancer continues on many fronts. Unfortunately, recent health data has identified that each and every day, more than 50 Australians will be diagnosed with a blood cancer, an increase from 47 people each day in 2020.

Blood cancers combined are Australia’s second most diagnosed cancer and sadly, the second most common cause of cancer-related deaths, which is more than breast cancer and melanoma combined.

The Leukaemia Foundation continues to support the blood cancer community in Mackay and across These numbers reinforce the significance of your contribution now and into the future as we continue our drive towards zero lives lost by 2035.

Thanks to the fundraising contributions and donations of people from Mackay region, in the 2020-2021 financial year, Leukaemia Foundation has directly supported 110 families from the Mackay region in a number of ways including providing 1430 nights of accommodation whilst receiving treatment  and just shy of 200 interactions of information and support services through the Leukaemia Foundation Blood Cancer Support Coordinators .

Thank you again for your generosity, and most of all your passion and commitment to our shared goal of zero lives lost to blood cancer by 2035. We’re very pleased that you’re sharing this journey with us.
