Every 28 mins, someone in Australia is diagnosed with blood cancer. For many, a stem cell transplant from a stranger is their only hope. We need young Australians like you to help.

Together, TLR Foundation and Strength to Give are calling young Australians to put their hand up to save a life.

Founded in 2017 to honour Tracy Lee Richey’s life, the TLR Foundation is on a mission to significantly impact lives affected by blood cancers in Australia. By collaborating with Strength to Give, the foundation zeroes in on enlisting young Australians, especially young men, into the stem cell donor registry. Supported by a vibrant community of donors and advocates, TLR is dedicated to crucial stem cell donor recruitment, research, and care, with an eye on expanding its influence even further.
