Meeting urgent needs during the pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected the blood cancer community, in particular people experiencing a blood a cancer and researchers. From the start of the pandemic, cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment were delayed putting survival, quality of life and hospitalization for people experiencing a blood cancer at risk. It may take years for researchers to recover from lab shutdowns, shortages of supplies and fear among trial participants. We are also learning that those living with a blood cancer are also experiencing higher levels of stress, loneliness, social isolation and depression as a result of the pandemic.

From the onset of the pandemic, we received your donations in greater numbers than we could have ever imagined.
