Every day 6 children and adults in New Zealand are diagnosed with a blood cancer like leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or a related blood condition. Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand (LBC) is the national charity dedicated to supporting patients and their families living with blood cancers like leukaemia and related blood conditions. They receive no government funding.
In 2020, Farmers and LBC are proudly celebrating the 12th anniversary since becoming charity partners!
The funds raised by our generous customers and staff are used to support LBC’s work in the community including core services such as personalised support for patients and their families. This includes running support groups, programmes, hospital visits and being there at the end of the phone to answer questions and concerns patients and families may have and provide information about their condition.
Donations are also used by LBC to provide funding for research into finding cures and better treatments, raising awareness of these diseases and advocating on behalf of patients.
If you, or someone you know, needs to be receiving support from Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand’s patient services, please contact their toll free number on 0800 15 10 15.
