Our Bromsgrove & District Branch held their 27th Fun Run on the 10th of May and it has raised over £15,700 so far! Over 400 entrants were able to use chip timing for the first time this year, which made for very competitive 5km and 10km races! It was great to see so many of you out running.

Conventional treatments for most leukaemias involve a cocktail of chemotherapy drugs.  Most of these can be considered 'non-specific,' meaning that as well as killing the leukaemia cells, they unfortunately target normal, healthy cells too, as anyone who has ever lost their hair during treatment will know.  Some chemotherapy drugs are more likely to affect fast-dividing cells, meaning that the uncontrollably dividing leukaemia blast cells are targeted, but also cells such as those in the...

The National Cancer Research Institute are looking to recruit patients, carers and others affected by lymphoma to join their NCRI Clinical Studies Lymphoma group.
