Official Charity of Choice for AGFEST 2017

The Agfest Organising Committee are delighted to announce that the Leukaemia Foundation has been selected as the Official Charity of Choice for AGFEST FIELD DAYS 2017.

With the blood disorder affecting thousands of lives, the Leukaemia Foundation work to support and find an outlet for those affected by the cancer.

The Leukaemia Foundation supports all families that are affected by Leukaemia, Myeloma, and Lymphoma.
Blood Cancer is the third most common cause of cancer death in Australia, killing more people the Breast Cancer and Melanoma. Research and study into blood cancer is consistently trying to improve the survival rates, sadly an Australian loses their life to blood cancer every two hours.

The Leukaemia Foundation provide support and care for patients and their loved ones.
They provide information, emotional support and advocacy and educational programs that aid those that are living with the disease and they also ensure that families have safe transport to and from hospitals whilst they undergo treatment. As cancer is continuing to affect so many people’s lives it is crucial to find a solution that will stop this from affecting so many.  

As a foundation that invests in millions towards Australian researchers to encourage finding a cure, Agfest is proud to be supporting the Leukaemia Foundation as the Official Charity of Choice at AGFEST PREMIER FIELD DAYS for 2017.
