Shouting out to the hardworking team at the Haematology Clinical Research Unit

The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly brought challenging times for us all – but even more so, for the hardworking and dedicated team at Concord Hospital’s Haematology Clinical Research Unit. Their treatment and care of blood cancer patients and their world-leading haematology clinical trials have continued under very difficult circumstances.

We are extremely grateful for their outstanding efforts and tirelessness, especially in the face of the pandemic, and in the lead up to Christmas, we called on the local community to send a shout out – either thanking the entire Haematology Clinical Research Unit team or an individual team member.

Donors chose one of the following to support our bloody great cause:

      • Red Christmas blood drop
        donation of $10       
      • Green Christmas blood drop
        donation of $20         
      • Silver Christmas blood drop
        donation of $50         
      • Gold Christmas blood drop
        donation of $100       
      • White Christmas blood drop
        choose your own donation amount

All funds raised will go towards Concord Hospital’s world-leading, blood cancer clinical trials, giving even more patients, a greater hope for a cure.

We thank the community wholeheartedly for its support – thank you for ensuring we all had A Bloody Great Christmas!
