Open the door to leukaemia charity

IT’S time to open your doors, your hearts and gather your small change to give to Leukaemia Foundation volunteers who will be knocking on doors around the state for the annual Doorknock Appeal from tomorrow until July 29.

A few gold coins are all it takes to make a difference in the life of a leukaemia patient. Collectively, the foundation hopes to raise $1.2m from the appeal to continue investment in medical research, giving patients the chance to dream of a brighter future.

Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland chief executive Peter Johnstone, said the doorknock appeal would also raise funds to support patients as they faced the most difficult battle of their lives.

“A blood cancer diagnosis is not only devastating for the patient but presents many financial and emotional challenges for the whole family,” Mr Johnstone said.

If you miss giving to a doorknocker, you can donate online, or for more information, please visit the website at www.doorknock.net.au or phone 1800 152 211.
