Why support us:

Every day 27 people are diagnosed with leukaemia: that’s more than one every hour. At Leuka, we're a specialist cancer charity funding researchers who aim to translate their findings into new treatments as quickly as possible, so patients can live better, longer lives. Researchers like Dr Lisa Hopcroft at the University of Glasgow, who is working on a better understanding of Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia genetics; work that could expose weaknesses in the cancer that could then be targeted by new treatments.
