Blood Cancer UK becomes an affiliate of Our Future Health
Blood cancer is a type of cancer that affects blood cells. Leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma are some of the most common types of blood cancer. Around 40,000 people are diagnosed with blood cancer each year in the UK, and over 250,000 people are currently living with the condition. Blood Cancer UK is dedicated to beating blood cancer and supporting those affected.
Our Future Health is joining with many of the UK’s leading health research charities who are providing valuable support and expertise to help develop Our Future Health. They will make a big impact in allowing us to ultimately change the way we prevent, detect and treat diseases.
Andrew Roddam, CEO of Our Future Health, said: “We are delighted to have the support of Blood Cancer UK at this exciting point in our programme. We look forward to working with them to ensure Our Future Health enhances and extends the opportunities to deliver life changing research designed to tackle blood cancer.”
Helen Rowntree, Director of Research, Services and Engagement, said: “We’re excited to join Our Future Health as an affiliate charity. Developing new ways to prevent, detect and treat blood cancer is vital for us to deliver on our mission and we look forward to working with them to facilitate that.”
