What we do

We’re the UK’s leading blood cancer research charity.

Blood cancer is the fifth most common cancer in the UK.

And while huge progress has been made in improving treatment since we started in 1960, it is still the third biggest cause of UK cancer deaths – taking more lives each year than breast or prostate cancer.

Even for those who survive, the long-term effects of treatment can be devastating.

We fund world-class research, ensure everyone affected has access to the right support at the right time, and campaign for better treatments.

Where we’ve invested, survival rates and quality of life have improved. We’re proud to say that UK blood cancer research leads the world.

Gifts in Wills

We know that when you’re considering your Will, loved ones come first. But once you’ve ensured their future, you could help improve the future for families affected by blood cancer by leaving a legacy to Blood Cancer UK.

A gift in a Will, no matter the size, will change the lives of people affected by blood cancer. It could be the most important gift you ever give.

Every 14 minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with blood cancer. In that instant, their life is changed forever.

Blood Cancer UK doesn’t receive any government funding, and gifts in Wills, big and small, make up more than a third of our income every year. Without the gifts people like you leave in their Will, we simply couldn’t do what we do.

Gifts in Wills will help us fund the following work:

  • Develop better tests, so people can get an accurate diagnosis, more quickly
  • Funding research for cures for every type of blood cancer
  • Providing expert information and practical support for everyone affected by blood cancer
