Centred work on those affected by blood cancer

ELF was founded in 1977 and registered as a national charity in May 1981. For almost 40 years we have been helping to advance the cure and treatment of leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and myelodysplasia.

The Elimination of Leukaemia Fund, ELF, stands out as a leading blood cancer charity because it concentrates on patient centred work, supporting projects that have an immediate or near future benefit to patients and the treatment and cure of leukaemia, Hodgkin’s and other lymphomas, myeloma, and myelodysplasia.

For us the person with blood cancer, their wellbeing and support for them and their families is critical. We are striving for better support for all those diagnosed with Leukaemia.

  • 3. Fellowship awards – further education of clinicians. Nurses, clinical scientists and health professionals relative to Haematology.

And it was all started by a grateful patient!
