Our vision is simple: we’re here to beat blood cancer. Our mission is to stop people dying from blood cancer, we make patients’ lives better, and we look for ways to stop blood cancer happening in the first place. People with blood cancer should be able to live their lives to the full: free from the fear of relapse; free from side effects and free to do the things they love. We’ll work to improve quality of life until blood cancer no longer has an impact. If there are ways to prevent blood cancer, we’ll find them. We’ll uncover how blood cancer works, so we can stop it happening.
