Blood Cancer Patient Forum

The Blood Cancer Patient Forum is a unique opportunity for blood cancer patients, their family/whanau and friends to hear prominent speakers discuss a wide range of topics relevant to New Zealanders living with blood cancers or blood conditions.

There are a number of sessions during this day-long event ranging from disease biology to treatment updates. Attendees will be able to receive specialist advice and suggestions to help manage the practical and emotional impacts of a blood cancer and to support you to live well with or beyond a diagnosis.

We are delighted to announce that this years Blood Cancer Patient Forum will be held at the Heritage Auckland on Saturday 9 September. In addition, this year we will be holding a pre-forum workshop titled ‘Thriving through Survivorship’ which will take place on Friday 8 September prior to the welcome function.

To register for the Forum please head to the Blood Cancer Patient Forum website lbcforum17.co.nz.  The website will be regularly updated as speakers are confirmed so keep checking in to view these.
