Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation* (LLF) was registered in September 2002 as a charitable organization in Singapore and is an Institute of Public Character. Its mission is to assist needy patients not only with the necessary treatment costs but also with the objective to improve the quality of their lives through counselling support and social activities.
Leukemia and lymphoma are cancers arising from blood cells and can affect patients across all age groups. Treatment usually involves chemotherapy, stem cell transplant or special medication taken over long-term periods. Such treatments tend to be expensive and impose tremendous financial burden on both patients and their families.
Typically, the cost of chemotherapy ranges from $30,000 – $60,000, the cost of stem cell (ie. bone marrow or cord blood) transplants range from $50,000 to $80,000, and long-term medication costs for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) ranges from $15,000 to $25,000 per month. The financial impact on patients can be devastating especially if they do not have adequate health insurance, savings or other financial resources.
To date, the Foundation has provided financial assistance to more than 500 cases of blood cancer patients in Singapore, and as a result of the generous donations from the public, many of these patients are alive today. Counselling care is another important aspect of our work. We provide support to strengthen the emotional resilience of both patients as well as their caregivers.
The Governing Board of the LLF comprises members with deep experience in medical, management, financial and legal backgrounds. The Board members volunteer their time and receive no remuneration from LLF. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation is fulfilling an urgent and growing need of cancer patients in Singapore, and the Board looks forward to providing better support for such needy patients that is only possible through your generosity and compassion.
Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation is an Institution of Public Character (IPC No. HEF0083/G). All donations are tax-deductible and the tax deduction will be automatically included in your tax assessment form if you have provided your Tax Reference number to us (e.g. NRIC, FIN, UEN).
In support of green efforts to save the environment, our charity will not be issuing any receipts unless upon request.
