Elimination of Leukaemia Fund or ELF
The Elimination of Leukaemia Fund (ELF) has been helping to advance the cure and treatment of blood cancers since 1977 and is different from most leukaemia charities because it has a strong patient focus for its grant giving.
Blood cancers affect all ages, and ELF’s awards are targeted at all age groups. All our awards are made with the patient in mind and even the research and clinical trials we support are chosen to have a near future benefit for patients.
To reinforce our patient centred approach, ELF makes a number of grants each year to support doctors, nurses and related health professionals in their work with blood cancer patients. We are particularly proud of the support we give to nurses, because it is the nurses who are most often in the frontline of patient care.
We are also aware that advances in treatment and care come about by education and training. ELF awards Educational Fellowships each year so that doctors, nurses and related health professionals can advance their ability to treat and care for blood cancer patients. Because of our patient centre focus, by helping ELF today, you are helping blood cancer patients today.
