About Leukaemia & Myeloma Research UK

Origins

Leukaemia & Myeloma Research UK was founded in 2015 when one of the Trustee’s families experienced a family bereavement. The Leukaemia & Myeloma Research UK charity was established to tackle cancer of the blood. Our vision is to be the leading UK blood cancer charity specialising in stem cell therapy. We actively support stem cell research into blood cancers, raise awareness of stem cell therapies and offer a free stem cell storage service for qualifying families, which we call Model Cell Biobank.
