WE ARE A COALITION OF CHARITIES REPRESENTING PEOPLE LIVING WITH BLOOD CANCER
There are around 240,000 people living with blood cancer in the UK.
Together, blood cancers are the fifth most common type of adult cancer, the most common cancer amongst children and the third most fatal cancer. Together, they claim more lives every year than breast or prostate cancer, however they remain widely unknown. Those living with one of these cancers face unique challenges whilst undergoing diagnosis, treatment and on-going care.
The Blood Cancer Alliance is a group of twelve UK charities. Together, we are working to tackle the issues blood cancer patients face, and improve the experience and outcomes of all those living with blood cancer.
We believe that effective engagement with policy makers is vital if we are to achieve that goal.
