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.
Thanks to all who attended the Remembering Dave Whelan event. Your support for the family and the BMLT is really appreciatied. As well as all the fundraising events taking place all over the country over the coming months, we had a substantial number of runners in the Womens Mini Marathon and there were a number of runners taking part in the Dublin City Marathon as well! For some more fundraising ideas why not have a look at some past events, such as the Remembrance Run , Bowl for Bone Marrow, Lugnaquilla Challenge, the Kilkenny Marathon, or last year's sponsored walk to Sardinia and Corsica? Why not check the mycharity site for more events for ideas and perhaps these, or those above 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.
