Cure Leukaemia

The time is now for curing blood cancer

Former Wolves, Crystal Palace and England footballer abd Cure Leukaemia Patron Geoff Thomas has been an inspiration to both patients and clinicians ever since his bone marrow transplant ten years ago as he has selflessly worked to increase treatment options for blood cancer patients. It is a huge privilege to be working with him to maximise curative options for patients from across the United Kingdom.

Leukaemia is a cancer of the blood that usually begins in the bone marrow. It can affect anyone at any age, and Cure Leukaemia has been fighting back for 15 years. 

Around 14,000 people die from blood cancers in Britain each year. The prospect of survival for many adults with the disease is still less than 50%, which is exactly why your support is so vital and so valuable.

The charity was established in 2003 to allow patients with blood cancer, like Geoff, access to the remarkably effective new treatments that are continually being developed.

By joining Geoff on this inspirational journey from London 2 Paris, you’re helping to inspire a revolution in blood cancer treatment. Every £10 you raise can be used to leverage £100 worth of pioneering treatments, helping people suffering from this terrible disease and moving us ever closer towards a cure.

This video narrated by Patron Adrian Chiles explains where your money goes:

Your participation in London 2 Paris 2018 really can inspire a revolution in the treatment of blood cancer and directly help save lives.
