Fight Cancer Foundation is proud of our longstanding partnership with Melbourne Health and The Royal Melbourne Hospital to fund research into blood disorders.
Blood Cancer, which includes leukaemias, lymphomas and multiple myeloma, affect people of all ages. With more than 35 new diagnoses each day, blood cancer is one of the most common cancers in Australia.
Ongoing funding for blood cancer and blood disorder research is vital to ensure less invasive treatments are developed, patient outcomes are improved and ultimately a cure is found.
How our Funding Helps
Each year Fight Cancer Foundation provides funding to The Royal Melbourne Hospital Clinical Haematology Service.
Our funding helps in two key ways:
1. General expenses to ensure the Clinical Haematology Service can continue to operate at a high level with state of the art equipment and facilities.
2. Fight Cancer Foundation's ‘Fay Duncan Award for Women in Medical Research’ is awarded each year to a medical researcher selected by a panel of research scientists.
