The Leukaemia and Intensive Chemotherapy Fund is an important local healthcare charity that works to improve the care of cancer patients in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and South Worcestershire.

Providing emotional and financial support for people receiving intensive chemotherapy.

Whilst a patient’s individual life is put cruelly on standstill, the outside world continues to make its demands. This is when LINC is there to provide help, care and support.

At a time when patients are fighting for their lives and their families are trying to maintain some semblance of daily life, LINC is there to provide some home comforts, relieve financial stress and give psychological support.

Linc
LINC was founded in 1998 and was the brainchild of Dr Robert Dalton who was a Consultant Haematologist at Cheltenham General Hospital.  Very sadly, Dr Dalton died in 2003 and the Leukaemia Research post was set up in his name. It is for a post graduate PhD student studying in the field of leukaemia or lymphoma.

There will always be a need for something to help patients through their treatment – either new equipment or replacing existing items purchased by LINC. We are already committed to funding 2 clinical psychologists and their secretarial time plus our PhD research fellow.

These recurring expenses mean that the charity has to raise £100K per year for these salaries before we can do anything else. If we agree to fund a full time research nurse this sum will increase.

Your support is very important to us and to our patients. Without your help we would not be able to continue to provide this level of patient care.

LINC is a registered charity - number 1078183.
