Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI is the only charity in Northern Ireland dedicated to blood cancer research. Our mission is to improve survival rates and quality of life for all blood cancer patients by supporting clinicians, scientists and students researching these diseases.
Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI formerly known as the Northern Ireland Leukaemia Research Fund was founded by the McDowell family in 1964 following the death of their daughter Carole. In an effort to prevent other families suffering this loss, the McDowell’s started fundraising for blood cancer research and the Northern Ireland Leukaemia Research Fund was born.
The charity is the McDowell family legacy, their determination to do something for others when faced with terrible circumstances still drives much of the work we do today.
