How we’ve delivered on what we said we’d do last year

We are here to beat blood cancer. We do this by funding research that leads to better treatments, giving information and support to people affected by blood cancer and campaigning for better healthcare.

Funding lifesaving research

Over the last 60 years, we have shown that blood cancer research saves lives, and the £500 million we have invested has helped radically transform treatments.

Working with others
