Nurse project receives federal funding boost

Lymphoma Australia receives major funding boost  

On Friday 29 March, The Hon Greg Hunt MP announced that Lymphoma Australia will receive a 1.2 million dollar grant from the Federal Government to continue and develop our Lymphoma Australia Lymphoma Care Nurse program.

This funding will ensure we are supporting patients and nurses across Australia to have access to information and support at the time when it is needed most. 

The funding will support Lymphoma Care Nurses over the next four years.

Lymphoma is the number one blood cancer in Australia, and the number one cancer for hospital admissions.  

Over the past 30 months Minister Hunt has also approved 13 new listings on the PBS for lymphoma giving patients access to the latest and best treatments.

Our appreciation of this grant is beyond words as it will change outcomes for patients across Australia.
