PROJECT TYPE Support

The Leukaemia Foundation Overflow ‘Home away from Home’ Accommodation Project for rural and regional blood cancer patients in NSW and Victoria.  When patient demand greatly exceeds the Leukaemia Foundation’s capacity to provide accommodation in close proximity to treatment in NSW and Victoria, they are forced to utilise external service providers in the provision of accommodation.  This scenario results in significant expense to the Foundation, often placing further fiscal pressure on their existing mission budget.  This project will provide funding for this critical service across a period of one year when facilities are at capacity in NSW and Victoria.
