About

Linc is dedicated to supporting blood cancer patients and their families across Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and South Worcestershire.

Our Impact

Everyone’s experience is different and we’re there when you need our support. Whether that’s there from the point of diagnosis, when patients are going through intensive chemotherapy, when families are going through a challenging time, or when you need some fighting spirit or a boost living day to day with blood cancer.

Linc help to navigate the impact of cancer upon patients and their loved ones by funding Clinical Psychologists that work with the NHS Trust. We also fund clinical trial nurses who work with blood cancer patients who are receiving treatment and support them through trials that could benefit them further. This in turn provides learnings and information which will change patient outcomes nationally and internationally in the future.

Away from treatment we also make a difference in home life. Linc’s specially reserved fund helps people with practical support when they’ve been diagnosed with blood cancer. This could be in the form of financial assistance with childcare and rent costs, or creating special memories by funding a family day out. Each action is quick to access, bespoke and tailored to them.

Our Community

The overwhelming response from the local community is humbling. We create hubs and groups that share our same goals whether that’s at events, fundraisers or when we’re having a catch-up over coffee. As we continue to grow every year their encouragement is highly valued. Linc is proud to be supported by our patrons Laurence and Jackie Llewelyn-Bowen and, Dr PJ Crook MBE. We are also indebted to our trustees, as well as the many groups and individuals who dedicate their time or donate money to the charity.

Our Pledge

As a charity whose purpose is to support local people diagnosed with blood cancer, Linc delivers lasting relationships that put the patient and their families at the heart of what we deliver every day to make a difference.
