Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Jul 2021, 11:59 PM

In Singapore, there are about 2,000 new cases of blood cancers, including leukemia and lymphoma, every year, with at least six new patients diagnosed every day. 40 per cent of childhood cancer patients suffer from leukemia, making it the most common cancer among children. Many who face leukemia have a weakened immune system that may have trouble even fighting day-to-day illnesses. It is essential to note that blood cancer is largely treated by chemotherapy and typically costs $30,000 to $60,000, while others include stem cell donations that range from $50,000 to $80,000, and long-term medication costs for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) ranges from $15,000 to $25,000 per month. Patients and their families face immense financial pressure. Hence, in order to help alleviate patients' and their families' stress, while they are fighting the cancer demons in their blood, we hope that members of the public will be willing to lend a helping hand. And of course, we know that it is in their blood as well, to give patients the hope they need to survive through charity and mental support. Together, we can all help blood cancer patients and their loved ones live better lives. Your efforts will be deeply appreciated.

About The Charity

Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation LLF was set up as an Institution of Public Character in 2003. We have been providing financial assistance to more than 400 patients with leukemia, lymphoma or related blood diseases. Each year, LLF disburses almost S$1.0 million to needy patients who undergo expensive curative treatment at the government hospitals, in consultation with the hospital specialist teams. Besides financial assistance, the Foundation also provides counselling support to patients and their families.
The Foundation is committed to ensure that all funds donated by the public are used in the most effective manner. Our Board is responsible for corporate governance and guides and monitors the Foundation operations. So please be assured that your donations will be well spent to support the curative treatment to needy patients. Your altruistic benevolence and donations will help patients get treated and start afresh in life.
