2019 marks our 55th birthday! And to celebrate our anniversary we want to go BIG with our fundraising, by raising an additional £150,000.

As you know, each year we need to raise over £600,000 in order to support our on-going research projects. This year we are setting ourselves a new exciting target with the hopes of improving patient outcomes and research.

Raising an additional £150,000 would allow us to support My BLOCk the Myeloid Blood Cancer initiative.

Despite advances in treating other cancers, the standard of care for patients with myeloid malignancies has not changed for decades.

Its not for lack of effort, but, myeloid malignancies such as AML, MDS and MPN are complex groups of different subtypes of blood cancer with the survival prognosis often being very poor.

MY BLOCk will use advanced genomic technology to:

Understand the genetic mutations in myeloid malignancies at diagnosis and during disease

Identify targeted therapies to inhibit these mutations and more effectively treat the cancer


Improve patient diagnosis

Advance research capability

Improve therapeutic options for patients with myeloid blood cancers

Will be rolled out to other blood cancer types

Improve patient outcomes

This research will take place in Northern Ireland, directly benefiting the people of Northern Ireland, but with positive results having a global reach. We are nothing without your support. Lets work together to improve the outcome for everyone.

In memory of my darling husband Philip who lived with myelofibrosis for 20 years. Hopefully new research will help others in the future.
