Five-year-old Mia Caulton from Perton, South Staffordshire, was just seven months old when she was diagnosed with infantile acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and had to spend her first birthday, Christmas and New Year at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. She stayed there for nine months to receive a gruelling cycle of treatments, including lumbar punctures, bone marrow operations, blood transfusions and chemotherapy.

“The work Blood Cancer UK does is truly lifesaving for patients like Mia, so we’re thrilled that the money raised from this Omaze partnership will enable such an important charity to help more families like us.”

Blood Cancer UK is a charity dedicated to funding research into blood cancer, which includes leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. The campaign will give the charity a guaranteed minimum donation of £100,000 and has a target raise of at least £500,000.

The money raised will help Blood Cancer UK to fund more research to reach the day when blood cancer is finally beaten. Because, together, we can be the generation to beat blood cancer. 

Gemma Peters, Blood Cancer UK’s Chief Executive, said: 

“The partnership is also a great opportunity to raise awareness of blood cancer and its symptoms. Too many people with blood cancer are not diagnosed quickly enough, which results in poorer outcomes so by making sure more people know about the symptoms, we could save lives.”
