Cancer tears apart millions of families every year. Non- Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL) is a silent but deadly group of cancers of the blood and lymphatic system. In adults they comprise the 5th commonest type of cancer - an estimated 15,000 people will be diagnosed this year in the UK, leading to over 6000 deaths annually. No age group is spared - in children lymphomas represent the 3rd commonest type of cancer. Treatment often involves painful courses of chemotherapy and in some cases bone marrow transplantation. Despite this, there has been relatively little research so far into either the causes of or new treatments for NHLs.
But now there is a glimmer of hope!
UCL - a renowned hospital at one of the world's top universities - has set up a research team who plan ground-breaking work in the search for new, more effective cures.
Many lives are tortured or lost by this disease every year, but it need not be this way!
With your support this suffering can end.
With your help we can stop the pain.
With your help we can save lives!
My name is Sandra Hamilton and I have this disease.
It took three, long, painful, anxious YEARS to even get a diagnosis! Shocking, considering this is one of the most common types of cancer. Having finally been diagnosed, my world crashed down. There was nothing they could offer me; not even any proper insight. However, I have not accepted my fate and given up on life. I am fighting to survive and to help others live too. I love my life, my children, my husband, my world, and I want to stay here just like all the other sufferers I have met along the way.
This cancer needs research. It needs funding. It needs a cure. With the help of family, friends, and UCL, I have set up this charity to offer a future for the thousands of people going through the same pain. This cancer is becoming more common, affecting people of all ages, cultures and sexes. I am determined to defeat this disease as well as to help others. The charity board and I are planning a launch event in October, as well as several other fundraising events. Till then we are desperately seeking sponsors and donations to get this research rolling.
We desperately need to raise £50,000 as soon as possible to fund our first Researcher and some vital equipment. 100% of all donations go towards finding a cure. With your help and support we can stop the pain, save lives and find a cure.
With your help we can
