Law student Sue Harris died in 1997, aged 34, despite a campaign in which thousands were screened in the hope of finding a bone marrow match to her rare tissue type.
The Trust continues the work of her campaign, seeking to recruit stem cell donors who can provide a life-saving option for those suffering from leukaemia or a blood cancer.
Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research is the only UK charity solely dedicated to research into blood cancers, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. They started research into blood cancers in 1960.
Their life-saving research is focused on finding causes, improving diagnosis and treatments, and running ground-breaking clinical trials for all blood cancer patients.
The Lymphoma Research Trust was originally set up in 1973 to support the activities of the British National Lymphoma Investigation (BNLI), particularly the BNLI central office responsible for managing studies and developing some of the first electronic databases to be used in clinical trials.
In 2002 a Lymphoma Study Group was established by the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) to facilitate larger trials producing answers to important questions more quickly. The BNLI trials office became the Lymphoma Trials Office (LTO) in the CRUK and UCL Cancer Trials Centre.
Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust (SDBTT) is the largest brain tumour charity in the UK, currently funding over 20 world-class, AMRC-accredited research projects, providing UK-wide support and information to people living with and affected by a brain tumour and campaigning to raise awareness of brain tumours.
The SDBTT was founded by Neil and Angela Dickson in 1996 shortly after they lost their daughter Samantha to a brain tumour, and became a registered charity in 1997.
The Adam Dealey Foundation for Ewing Sarcoma was formed in 1995 by John and Marian Dealey after the death of their son Adam from Ewing Sarcoma.
