Blood Cancer UK (Bloodwise)

We're a community dedicated to beating blood cancer by funding research and supporting those affected. Since 1960, we've invested over £500 million in blood cancer research, transforming treatments and saving lives.


We fund world-class research, ensure everyone affected has access to the right support at the right time, and campaign for better treatments.Fighting for real change in blood cancer care and support is at the heart of what we do.
All too often, people with blood cancer don’t get the quality of care they need.  If you have blood cancer, you are more likely to struggle to get a diagnosis than for any other common cancer  .Because many people with blood cancer sometimes wait months or even years before starting treatment, they have specific psychological support needs that the NHS doesn’t always meet. There is also a postcode lottery around whether get the chance to take part in a clinical trial.  People with blood cancer need clear information about their cancer and their treatment options.
Blood cancer patients are more likely than any other cancer patients to leave their diagnosis appointment feeling they don’t fully understand their condition. We want to change that. We provide clear information about blood cancer that people can trust, in a language they can understand. Every year, we deliver more than 40,000 booklets about blood cancer to hospitals and patients, and our online health information is accessed 350,000 times.  People also need advice and support on how to adapt to day-to-day life after a blood cancer diagnosis. There are challenges that are quite unique to blood cancer, such as living with cancer as a chronic condition, being on ‘watch and wait’, having treatment that lasts for many years or having a fluctuating course of remissions and relapse. We support people through all of this.  This is why we have a phone line and email address where people can speak to one of our trained blood cancer support officers who can provide information about your blood cancer, and help with emotional and practical support. Every year, we respond to thousands of enquiries from people affected by blood cancer.
