Welcome to the Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Trust Website
Welcome and thank you for visiting the Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Trust website. We are a charity specifically dedicated to supporting people in Ireland who have leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma and have had or may need a stem cell transplant.
We provide direct support for patients and their relatives – especially recognising the support needed for those coming from outside Dublin. We also support the running of the Haematology Department in St James Hospital, Dublin, in the national allogeneic transplant centre. It is the only location where an adult can receive a sibling or matched unrelated donor stem cell transplant.
As well as all the fundraising events taking place all over the country over the coming months, we have two major fundraising events coming up this year, the Womens Mini Marathon and the Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Frances Campbell Walk in September to Istanbul. We also expect to have a number of runners in the Dublin City Marathon as well! For some more fundraising ideas why not have a look at some of our past events, including the Lugnaquilla Challenge, the Who's Eddie? concert in Carlow, the Kilkenny Marathon, the Mother's Day Murder Mystery Weekend or last year's sponsored walk to Sardinia and Corsica? Perhaps these might inspire you to organise an event! If so, please contact us and let us know.
Please also take a look at our testimonials page where patients or family describe their experience with blood cancer and we also now have some blogs written by those with personal experience - you can access these from the Blogs menu item above.
The Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Frances Campbell Walk 2013 - help fight leukaemia
We are delighted to announce the details of our sponsored walk for 2013, now known as The Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Frances Campbell Walk, which will be in Istanbul from the 21st to the 28th of September. This is a great way to raise funds for the Trust as well as getting to visit some fabulous locations and have a good time with the other walkers.
If you have any further queries please feel free to email Maureen in relation to the walk.
