A blood cancer diagnosis affects all parts of your life. Coping with its impact on personal relationships, your finances, your work and your future can be overwhelming. Finding someone to talk to who will listen to your fears and concerns is really important.

At Leukaemia UK we understand that getting well again is a mental as well as physical challenge and we want to work with you to help remove as much of the worry of your treatment as possible.

We will shortly be revealing our work with King's College Hospital in London on a ground breaking care initiative to join up mind and body treatments to minimise mental health repercussions from the effects of living with a long term illness.

Leukaemia UK has funded posts which have revolutionised emotional care for people affected by blood cancer. Read about the pioneering work of clinical psychologist Dr Clare Jacobson here.

Leukaemia UK can also offer small grants for people whose blood cancer has left them with financial worries. Find out more about our Helping Hand Fund.
