Blood cancer patients and their carers will soon be able to receive support from a new group launched by blood cancer charity Leukaemia CARE.

The group will meet every month in St Albans, but will welcome people from further afield in Herts.

Patients living with or beyond blood cancer whether they have been recently diagnosed or have completed treatment will be made welcome, as will carers, family members and friends looking for support, reassurance and advice.

At some meetings, the group will be joined by guest speakers.

The idea to launch the group has come from Hannah Kutler, whose dad and a couple of close friends have all been diagnosed with a blood cancer.

She said: “Many patients require support outside of hospital care, or between appointments, and that’s where we come in.”

The launch meeting will be on Thursday, September 24, from 7pm.
