Fundraising for blood cancer clinical trials


With the Sydney Local Health District’s endorsement and support, Foundation for A Bloody Great Cause Limited was established in 2019 to further the objectives of The Bloody Great Committee, which has been fundraising for the world-leading blood cancer clinical trials at Concord Cancer Centre, Concord Hospital since 2013.


The Haematology Clinical Research Unit at Concord Hospital is the largest clinical research unit for blood cancers in NSW. It conducts world-leading clinical trials to access innovative therapies for Leukaemia, Lymphoma, Myeloma and other blood disorders.


More than 700 patients have participated in this research and have benefited greatly from cutting-edge treatments, long before they are publicly available. For many patients, participating in our clinical research program is their only hope for a cure and a better quality of life.


Your support means that even more patients with blood cancers and other blood disorders can participate in these world-leading clinical trials – we thank you wholeheartedly.


Our sincere thanks to James Campisi for the generous donation of his time, providing legal advice and considerable work to make The Bloody Great Committee's dream of establishing a Foundation, a reality. We are eternally grateful.
