Where your money goes

£5

could help to fund our online GP resource, helping to ensure that patients face shorter delays in diagnosis. Earlier diagnosis saves lives.

£10

could ensure that a newly diagnosed patient gets the information they need from our booklets to our patient magazine; sources of comfort at a vulnerable time.

£25

could fund a delegate place for a patient at one of our conferences. Conferences are a place for patients to meet, share experiences and to learn about living with and beyond a blood cancer diagnosis.

£50

could help us to offer additional training to a GP to help them spot the signs and symptoms of leukaemia.

£100

could cover our Nurse Advisor on the help line for one week so that patients receive medical and clinical advice at a time when they need answers.

£300

could help to fund 10 of our support group meeting; a place to help reduce the sense of isolation a blood cancer diagnosis can bring.

Meet Kate Stallard

I'm still here

About two months beforehand, I started to feel very tired, I had been experiencing some of the symptoms for a few months and put it down to stress as I was going through a divorce. I never thought it could be cancer! I visited my GP initially who dismissed my symptoms as stress related. Just two days later I found myself at A&E I was told I had acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). I was moved to the haematology ward later that night and was told I needed urgent chemotherapy.

Two days into the chemo, I was told I actually had acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL). So, I started a new chemo regime. I spent six weeks on the ward. My lovely long blonde hair fell out in clumps. I started a second round of chemo as an outpatient, and at Christmas I had my third course and everything seemed to be going to plan...
