‘I couldn’t have asked for better care. I’m so grateful to Leuka and their supporters’
Holly Pomery, leukaemia patient
No-one expects to get leukaemia. It’s not hereditary, nor particularly common. However, for those diagnosed with the disease, their families and friends, it’s all too real and frightening.
Twenty eight year old Holly and her mum Theresa (pictured above) were devastated when Holly was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia following a routine antenatal blood test. Having received world-class treatment at The Catherine Lewis Centre, Holly is now the proud mum of baby Poppy.
‘Who’s Cooking Dinner?’ exists quite simply to create a better future for patients with leukaemia. To do this, it raises money for treatment and research, particularly for its specialist leukaemia facility, which is one of the world’s leading units for haematology.
Year on year, the generosity of our supporters is helping clinicians to beat blood cancer, and patients to enjoy a brighter future. Furthermore, scientists believe that the study of leukaemia will provide information relevant to the fight against all other kinds of cancer.
