ELF’s focus has always been about the care of those affected by blood cancer. We are a small charity that passionately believes people affected by blood cancer come first and our grant giving reflects that.
We have funded additional nursing posts, new facilities and research projects into improved treatments.
Looking to the future, research into patient needs has demonstrated that one of the biggest areas of need is for counselling and psychological support for people with blood cancer and families because treatments can be so long and involve such high levels of isolation. We are working with hospitals to develop these services.
Our investment into improved facilities and better treatments will increase as we work with hospitals to improve the experience for anyone suffering from blood cancer.
