Go Dry this July to support people affected by blood cancer
Dessy used the Leukaemia Foundation transport program for travel to and from hospital during four months of treatment for rare leukaemia.
Everyday 35 Australians are diagnosed with blood cancer. By 2025, this number is predicted to jump to 50 people.
That’s one Australian every 41 minutes.
Today, 100,000 Australians are living with a blood cancer, impacting hundreds of thousands of friends and family.
For people living with blood cancer, getting to and from hospital for treatment can be an extra burden at an already stressful time. Especially for those who have already relocated from rural or remote areas for cancer treatments, who don’t have any other means of transport, or who have limited finances.
Our free transport service is an essential service for people with blood cancer that helps relieve some of the burden of getting to and from hospital.
This year, the funds you raise in Dry July will directly support the Leukaemia Foundation’s National Transport Program and allow us to continue vital support for thousands of families living with blood cancer around the country.

Dry July is a fundraising campaign aimed at challenging social drinkers to change their habits for a month and make some healthy lifestyle changes.
