Kay Kendall Leukaemia Fund (KKLF)

About KKLF

Our Kay Kendall Leukaemia Fund (KKLF) project offers person-centred support to people in Devon and Cornwall, their carers, and anyone in the family affected by leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or any other blood cancers and/or disorders. This includes supporting the families of children with blood cancers.

We have been delivering this project, funded by the Kay Kendall Leukaemia Fund charitable trust, since 2008. We understand that a cancer diagnosis can impact all aspects of a person’s life. Our KKLF caseworkers will assess your situation as a whole and provide bespoke support tailored to the needs of you and your family.
