For over a decade Wine Industry Suppliers Australia Inc (WISA) was pleased to support the Leukaemia Foundation of Australia.
Our partnership with the Foundation began after the sudden loss of our Treasurer, wine industry identity and WISA Member; Nic Law who passed from acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia in 2009. Since then, WISA and its stakeholders raised funds to support the Leukaemia Foundation of Australia to deliver on its vision to cure and mission to care.
WISA formalised their Official Charity Partnership with the Leukaemia Foundation of Australia via an MOU in 2013 and continued to strive to make an impact on the foundation that supports over 60,000 Australians and their families affected by blood cancer each year.
Blood cancers including; leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma can develop in anyone of any age at any time. A new diagnosis is made in Australia every 41 minutes.
Although research is improving survival rates, an Australian loses their life to blood cancer every two hours.
The Leukaemia Foundation is the only national charity solely dedicated to helping Australians survive blood cancer and live a better quality of life.
If you would like to make a donation to this worthy cause simply visit the Leukaemia Foundation of Australia's website.
