Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Trust

What we do

The Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Trust was formed in 1980 to help establish a Bone Marrow Transplant unit in Ireland. The Unit was openedin 1984, and from modest beginnings we now have a large fully modernised transplant unit sited in the new Denis burkitt Haematology/Oncology ward. The number of transplants carried out in the unit increased from 12 in 1985 to 120 in 2007.

The Trust supports the employment of special nurses, pharmacists, counsellors and the purchase of equipment and other technical support. It has purchased apartments in close proximity to the hospital to assist patients and their families. Substantial contributions have also gone to research carried out by the bone marrow transplant team under the direction of the leukaemia expert Professor Shaun McCann.

In short, the Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Trust continues to provide constant financial and moral support to the unit. Our fund raising efforts continually need support and new idea's. We welcome anyone wishing to help or advise us in this area.
