Providing support to anyone affected by blood cancer
We're available to talk over the phone whenever you need us. We’re always here, around the clock, every single day of the year.
You can Talk to us if you’re worried about your own diagnosis, have questions about what the future might hold or just want to chat to someone who knows what your going through.
Being diagnosed with a blood cancer can change everything. Some people find it hard to talk to their loved ones about their diagnosis, or even talk about it at all.
Sometimes, a chat with someone impartial, outside of your family or friendship circles can help.
Our CARE Line is the only UK support line that operates 24 hours a day. This means we're only a phone call away, no matter what time of the day or night whether you're a patient, family member or friend.
Call the CARE Line free on 08088 010 444.
All of our CARE Line staff and volunteers understand what you’re going through, either because they’ve had a personal experience of a blood cancer, or love someone who has.
We’re here to talk, listen and help you to understand your blood cancer. We're here to help you find the support and information you need. We're here to signpost you to other blood cancer resources as well as local and national organisations who can help. But most of all, we're here to support you at every step of the way.
“Leukaemia CARE came into my life. They have a totally free 24-hour phone line for people with or affected by blood cancer. If it wasn't for them I don't know how I would have coped. It really helped speaking to someone who understood what I was going through and provide the emotional support I needed."
We are always available should you need to talk to somebody. Just call us any time of day or night on 08088 010 444.
When you or a loved one receives a blood cancer diagnosis, it is understandable that you will have questions and want further clinical advice once the news has sunk in.
Whether it’s at the point of diagnosis or at on-going hospital or GP appointments, you may not take everything in the medical staff tell you or even know what questions to ask.

“I felt incredibly alone and I looked around for somebody to talk to so I could understand it and I found Leukaemia CARE. When I rang, I found somebody that understood. I just felt there was someone there who gets this.”
