Leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma are all types of blood cancer and they can develop in anyone, of
any age, at any time. Another 35 Australians are diagnosed each and every day. Although improved
treatments and care are helping more people survive, sadly someone loses their life to blood cancer
every two hours. In fact, blood cancer is the third most common cause of cancer death in Australia,
claiming more lives than breast cancer or melanoma. Support the Leukaemia Foundation today and
