Cure Leukaemia was established in 2003 to give blood cancer patients rapid access to pioneering drug and transplant treatments by funding a network of specialist research nurses in major leukaemia centres to deliver world-class clinical trials. This highly effective delivery model has transformed the speed at which groundbreaking clinical trials of new drug and transplant therapies can be assessed, and in the process, given patients for whom standard treatments have failed, access to potentially life-saving drugs.
Every £10 donated to Cure Leukaemia can leverage £100 of free, potentially life-saving drugs. Here is Cure Leukaemia Patron Adrian Chiles explaining how this works:
Based on Deutsche Bank’s current national charity partnership - an additional funding injection of £2m+ over two years for Cure Leukaemia would be distributed in two key areas.

All funds raised by Deutsche Bank will directly benefit patients battling blood cancer, just like 34-year-old firefighter Adam Joyce. Adam was first diagnosed with leukaemia in 2000 and was given just 3 months to live. Following treatment by Cure Leukaemia co-founder Professor Charlie Craddock, Adam's illness went in to remission and he was able to live a normal life once again.
He said, "I'm only here because of people like Professor Charlie Craddock and charities like Cure Leukaemia. I encourage Deutsche Bank staff to use one of their two votes to vote for Cure Leukaemia so that many more people can hear the three amazing words I heard all those years ago, you are cured."
Cure Leukaemia is lucky to have fantastic support from high profile figures from the sporting, culinary, entertainment and business industries. Here are a few faces you may recognise urging Deutsche Bank's staff to #VoteCL:

A message of support from four-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome:
"I lost my mother to blood cancer and I would urge people to support Cure Leukaemia's fundraising efforts in the coming weeks and months."
With Chris' support, we would organise a bucket list cycling experience with Chris Froome and Cure Leukaemia Patron Geoff Thomas for Deutsche Bank staff and clients in 2018. Giving you the chance to join Chris for an exclusive day in the saddle before a private dining experience with the Olympic Bronze medalist.
