patient groups

September is blood cancer awareness month and we are working together to Make Blood Cancer Visible. The Make Blood Cancer Visible campaign is sponsored by Janssen and supported by the UK's leading blood cancer patient support organisations:


We’re the UK’s leading blood cancer research charity. We fund research to improve treatment and care for people living with all types of blood cancer – including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma – and provide anyone affected with information and support.


CLL Support is a patient led UK charity. Our mission is to support and empower Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL) patients, their families and their carers through education and access to reliable, relevant and current information.


The UK's only patient led, registered charity with a sole focus on Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia.


Leukaemia Care is a national blood cancer support charity. We are dedicated to ensuring that anyone affected by blood cancer receives the right information, advice and support.


Lymphoma Action is the UK’s only charity dedicated to lymphoma, the UK’s fifth most common cancer. We’ve been providing in-depth, expert information and wide-ranging support for over 30 years, helping thousands of people affected by lymphoma. Our work drives improvements in the diagnosis, treatment, and aftercare of lymphoma.


MDS UK Patient Support Group offers support and information to patients and families, raise awareness and run campaigns for those affected by Myelodysplastic Syndromes.


Myeloma UK is the only UK charity to focus exclusively on the incurable blood cancer myeloma and its related conditions. It represents the 24,000 people in the UK with myeloma and aims to drive better outcomes through research, treatment access, healthcare services improvement, and patient and carer information and support programmes.


WMUK is the only charity in the UK focused solely on Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinaemia (WM), a rare type of blood cancer. Our goal is to improve the quality of life and survival of people with WM by providing support, and ultimately finding a cure. We are a partnership of WM doctors and patients in the UK working together to improve the treatment and care of people with WM.


Leukaemia UK funds ground breaking research and care for families affected by leukaemia and other blood cancers.
