Dedicated solely to the care and cure of Tasmanians living with leukaemia, lymphoma and related blood disorders

 

Since 1980, the David Collins Leukaemia Foundation of Tasmania has provided hundreds of patients and their families with care and support during the course of their disease, funded research to improve treatment and awarded scholarships for professional development of medical and allied staff in Tasmania.

 

ABOUT US

In 1979, when the late David Collins was diagnosed with leukaemia, no official Tasmanian organisation had been established to raise funds for leukaemia research or patient support. During his treatment and as his disease progressed, David Collins proposed the need to establish a dedicated group. Friends and family committed their time and effort voluntarily to the cause.

 

Since 1980, the Foundation has provided hundreds of patients and their families with care and support during the course of their disease, funded research  to improve treatment and awarded scholarships for professional development of medical and allied staff in Tasmania.

 

Our mission is to provide monetary support for researchers and medical personnel and to support patients with leukemia, lymphoma and related blood disorders and their families in Tasmania.
