After 50 years, leading UK charity Leukaemia Research has changed its name to Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.

Originally established in 1960 in the effort to fight childhood leukemia, Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research's name change is meant to reflect the organization's broader focus on the wider variety of different blood cancers, including not just Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, but also myeloma, aplastic anaemia, myeloproliferative disorders and myelodysplasia.

Over 28,000 people in the UK receive a blood cancer diagnosis each year.
