Donations, raised in the UK and across the globe go towards funding international programs pursued jointly by Gift of Life and our sister charity Podari Zhizn in Russia. Foreign Medicines has always been the grand spending for the charity, with 74% of the funds allocated to purchasing cutting-edge anticancer medications in 2015-2016. As part of our commitment to financial transparency we regularly report on our performance and expenditures.

September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month in the UK. The country where one case of blood cancer is registered every 20 minutes with 25,000 people diagnosed each year, the problem needs public attention and funding.
In Russia leukaemia and lymphoma are also among the most common cancers, especially in children. Sadly, each year over a 1000 of patients below 18 years old die of cancer in Russian clinics. This can be changed by getting better access to diagnostics and relevant medical treatments. Please, donate now to help Gift of Life save children and add to the global anti-cancer movement: http://giftoflife.eu/donate/ ... See MoreSee Less
