The Leukemia Foundation helps adults with blood cancer (leukemia and lymphoma). Since the start of COVID-19 pandemic, number of requests to our foundation have increased dramatically, almost doubled. Newly diagnosed and relapsed patients need expensive treatment and bone marrow transplants. At the same time, due to chemotherapy our patients have weakened immune system and are very vulnerable to COVID. We need to provide them with outpatient apartments near clinics, special treatment and PPE.
Since the start of COVID-19 pandemic the number of newly diagnosed with blood cancer and relapsed patients have increased dramatically. Most of them need very expensive treatment. At the same time we need to protect our patients. We ensure they can stay in outpatient apartments, provide them with PPE and additional care, so they don't get coronavirus, which is extremely harmful to their weakened immune systems. We really need your support to help our patients get through the pandemic.
The project will provide help more then 150 adult people with leukemia and lymphoma. Your donations will provide them with necessary medical treatment, additional care and protection from COVID-19.
We always work on increasing cancer awareness and fight cancerophobia. The more people we help, the more we increase awareness. And then more people will have a chance to get diagnosed on an early stage. And more people will join the national bone marrow donor registry, which can significantly reduce cost of the treatment in the future.
