Patients and their families need your help

Our Winter Recovery Fund patient grants have been set up to provide for patients in need during this time. No one should have to choose postponing a transplant because of financial worries.

The grant will help tremendously as cost of living is rising on every aspect (energy bills, food, and fuel). I am noticing a huge difference in my travel costs which is impacting other things in the household such as food budgets.

Grant recipient

£29 could cover the cost of 15 minutes’ support for a distressed patient or member of their family.

£58 could cover the cost of 30 minutes’ support.

£75 could cover half of the winter heating grant.

A gift of £5 a month could go towards travel costs for vital follow up appointments.

A gift of £10 a month could go towards ensuring Anthony Nolan’s helpline is there for patients and families.

A gift of £15 a month could go towards funding our winter fuel grants.

Emma's story

Emma, 41, found TESS invaluable for helping her deal with anxious thoughts around returning to work and attending her medical appointments when she was recovering from acute myeloid leukaemia.

The clinical health coach was lovely and offered a range of constructive support, she always knew the right thing to say. I was able to get a different perspective and turn negative thoughts into positive ones.

When someone is diagnosed with a form of blood cancer or a blood disorder they can be faced with a challenging journey of physical and emotional changes which can be overwhelming.  

We can offer that safe space to talk, to process the difficult mix of emotions and to give strategies to support ongoing mental wellbeing and maintain important relationships. Something particularly important in this cost of living crisis.

It is a difficult ask when everyone’s finances are already stretched. But if you can help, you’d be enabling us to continue our work. And that makes you a lifesaver. 

Thank you so much for your support. We couldn’t do this without you.
