Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation
Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation is a registered charity in Singapore, with IPC status since 2003. The Foundation was set up to support patients and their families as they battle blood cancers. We work closely with the doctors and transplant teams in Singapore hospitals to provide financial and emotional support to people affected by blood cancers like leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma etc.
Since 2003, the Foundation has approved more than million to patients who undergo curative treatment in our local restructured hospitals. This amounts to more than 600 patients and their families. Beyond supporting financially, the Foundation also aims to empower patients with knowledge of their diseases in order to make informed decisions.
Many patients embark on the arduous journey of treatment because of loved ones and close friends who walk beside them, encouraging them and sharing in their moments of ups and downs. It is our sincere hope that these close bonds of kinship and friendship will continue to be the source of strength and motivation to all our cancer warriors in their battle against the dreaded blood cancers of leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
