Who are The Leukaemia Cancer Society?

They 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. They provide practical, medical and emotional support and campaign for better cancer care.

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 a patient, carer or member of the family, is a life-changing experience.  The LCS 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.

  1. Such a great charity to be supporting, and this is such a nice idea. I used to write loads of stories as a kid so this would have been great for when I was younger x
