About us

We’re Leukaemia UK. We believe research has the power to stop leukaemia devastating lives.   

Despite decades of incredible progress, only half of leukaemia patients live longer than five years after their diagnosis. We won’t stop until we change this.  

Bringing together the leukaemia community, we will accelerate progress through life-changing research, doing everything we can to make sure that the next person with leukaemia has the best possible experience of diagnosis, treatment and care. 

We will bolster the science by raising greater awareness of the disease to improve survival and championing the voice of leukaemia patients so we can make sure they have access to the best available therapies and care.
