We are a charity dedicated to fighting blood cancer on every front - research, bone marrow/stem cell recruitment, support, information and campaigning.
Since the Leukaemia Cancer Society (LCS) was formed it has developed into a charity that raises money devoted to the recruitment of volunteer bone marrow donors, research, education and patient care.
LCS helps to improve the lives of people affected by blood cancer. We provide practical, medical and emotional support and campaign for better cancer care. Cancer affects us all. We can all help.
LCS is dedicated to ensuring that more people with cancer survive, have the best possible quality of life and that their families and carers get the support they need. Facing cancer, whether as patient, carer or member of the family, is a life-changing experience. works with people as they come to terms with and manage these changes, in particular by providing relevant information and emotional, social and psychological support.
The origins of The Leukaemia Society (U.K.) go back to 1994 when leukaemia sufferers John Triteos and Anna Georgiou, who needed bone marrow transplants to save their lives, began making a desperate appeal for bone marrow donors to come forward.
Friends and family of the two young people got together and in conjunction with the Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Trust worked very hard in organising clinics to try to enlist more Greek and Cypriot donors in order to find matches for John and Anna. Since then many donors have come forward and their names have been added to the register of names held by the Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Trust, although many more are needed.
