​​​​​​​After Loga was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) at just seven, the doctors tried everything. Steroids. Chemotherapy. Immunotherapy.  

The treatments were sheer agony for Loga. They made her hair fall out. They gave her terrible nightmares. But they couldn’t get rid of her blood cancer – it resisted everything.   

“Loga had one last chance,” explains her dad Pari “Going to America for a clinical trial for a new treatment. But the doctors told us that it was very risky.  

“We should prepare ourselves for coming back from America without our little girl.” 

Please will you give now and help people like Loga access new treatments for blood cancer here in Australia? 

No child should ever have to endure what Loga went through – the endless treatments that consumed every part of her tiny body with pain.  

And when all their chances have run out, no one should ever have to travel across oceans for treatment – or worse still, not be able to access treatment at all.  

Because four in five Australians with blood cancer try to access a clinical trial, but they cannot. The reasons are complicated, it could be there are no trials available in Australia, or they do not meet the eligibility criteria or they weren't aware a trial was available. 

To tackle the lack of clinical trials in Australia, the Leukaemia Foundation has committed to advancing the Blood Cancer Genomics Trial.  

It’s all about giving Australians with blood cancer access to new tailored, targeted treatments – quickly and locally.  

With one gift for new lifesaving treatments today, you will have double the impact. And you could make all the difference to people like Loga – who are running out of time and hope. 

Tour de Cure, our partner for the Blood Cancer Genomics Trial, are generously pledging to match anything you give.  

Please give now to help Australians get access to new lifesaving treatments - and have your gift matched.

​Loga was very athletic. She loved running and swimming. But after she was diagnosed with blood cancer, she was confined to a hospital bed - for months of gruelling treatment. 
None of the treatments worked. Loga's last chance was to go to America for a clinical trial of a new treatment - genetically modifying her blood cells to attack the blood cancer cells. 

The new treatment saved Loga's life. But may Australians can't access clinical trials - they can't access the new treatments that could be their last chance. So please give now.
