The Power of 10

The 'Power of 10' means that all funds donated to Cure Leukaemia work 10 times as hard, providing us with the opportunity to find a cure faster.

 


The NEED for MORE funds

 

"Patients are potentially missing out on lifesaving treatment as we simply do not have enough specialist nurses to deliver enough clinical trials. It is deeply frustrating that patients are being turned away and miss out on these important and potentially curative drugs.

 

The work Cure Leukaemia does is invaluable and has already made a huge impact in the fight against  leukaemia and lymphoma. I’d urge people to support the charity as they could make the difference between life and death."


Ram Malladi Senior Clinical Lecturer/Honorary Consultant Haematologist

 

  • Around 12,000 people a year die from blood cancers in Britain, equivalent numbers to those who die from breast cancer. The prospect of survival for many adults with blood cancers is still less than 50%.
     
  • There is an urgent need for leukaemia patients to access new, potentially lifesaving drugs so that they can share in the remarkable progress that is being made in so many other cancers.
     
  • The battle against leukaemia has already achieved a number of important victories. In 2001, and following significant trials, pioneering drug Glivec was given approval by the FDA in America, and has since transformed the lives of many people with chronic myelogenous leukaemia (CML).
