In 1960, when Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research was founded, adults, children and teenagers diagnosed with a blood cancer had virtually no chance of survival.
Now, 50 years on more patients than ever survive leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
Thanks to long term investments made in research we know much more about these diseases, which has helped us to develop safer and more effective treatments.
Diagnosing blood cancers early and more accurately has also been important in ensuring that every patient receives the best possible care.
With your support we continue to invest in only the best blood cancer research in the UK that is producing excellent results and helping us to come even closer to a cure.
