The Leukaemia Foundation Overflow ‘Home away from Home’ Accommodation Project for rural and regional NSW blood cancer patients forced to relocate to Sydney for treatment. When patient demand greatly exceeds the Leukaemia Foundation’s capacity to provide accommodation in close proximity to treatment in NSW, they utilise units managed by Uniting Care. This project is specifically seeking funding contributing to the costs associated with the lease of these facilities across a one-year period.
