Love Letters - Richard Buchanan


Our Love Letter's campaign comes to an end with a letter written by Richard Buchanan, Chairman of Leukaemia and Lymphoma NI, to his daughter Catherine.

Catherine was a pupil at Strathearn Grammar School in Belfast, where she was studying for her A-Levels with dreams of becoming a scientist. Catherine began to feel ill and after tests at Belfast City Hospital these confirmed a very rare and aggressive form of blood cancer called APL - Acute Promyelocytic Leukaemia.

A week after her diagnosis, Catherine died.

In the aftermath of Catherine’s death Richard became involved with Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI.

Every month in Northern Ireland 99 people are diagnosed with blood cancer.

Thanks to scientists based right here in Belfast, funded by Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI, three out of four people in Northern Ireland diagnosed with blood cancer survive.

But for that one in four there’s still work to be done.

We are hopeful that with your help, our researchers will one day find a cure for blood cancer.
