When Scotland's favourite Sunday newspaper turned 100 years old in 2014 it announced the launch of the Sunday Mail Centenary Fund to mark this special milestone.
Every year the Sunday Mail celebrates Great Scots. The newspaper is celebrating and supporting some of Scotland’s most deserving charities through the Centenary Fund as it raises £1 million to be shared by these great causes doing vital work in Scotland’s communities.
Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research is proud to be one of the 17 charities that the Sunday Mail Centenary Fund is supporting. We helped launch the appeal with the first article focusing on Christine Cairns, who was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma when she was 40. Later on that same year she received two early Christmas presents at a routine scan, she was in remission and was expecting. She gave birth to a little boy Oscar, who is now starting nursery. She said: “Oscar and I would not be here today if charities like Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research had not helped make the medical advancements that stopped my condition in its tracks. I owe them everything.”
