Help Australian families impacted by blood cancer

Every step you take is a step towards beating blood cancer. 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 every single day. 

The number of Australians living with a blood cancer is expected to rise around 30 per cent over the next decade. Currently 12,800 Australians are diagnosed with a blood cancer like leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma every year and that figure is expected to rise to 17,000 people by 2025. 

The money you raise through Hike to Beat Blood cancer will help more Australians with blood cancer survive and then go on to live a better quality of life.
