Providing support to anyone affected by blood cancer
September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month and here at Leukaemia CARE we are turning spotty for our Spot Leukaemia Campaign.
The campaign seeks to raise awareness of what leukaemia is, the symptoms to spot and who can be affected by leukaemia. We want to equip people to spot the signs and symptoms of leukaemia, and urge them to visit their GP if they have any concerns. Early diagnosis saves lives.
Get involved in one of six ways this Blood Cancer Awareness Month and show your support for #SpotLeukaemia:
1. Wear our #SpotLeukaemia ribbon with pride. Order your free ribbon here.
3. Hold a Spot Leukaemia fundraiser
4. Share our online e-learning resource with your GP
5. Find your local support group and go spottyFind out more
Leukaemia can be hard to spot because the signs and symptoms are common to other unrelated illnesses. Knowing what to look out for could help you make the decision to visit your GP sooner. Early diagnosis saves lives.
The six most common symptoms experienced by all leukaemia patients prior to diagnosis are:
2. Bruising or bleeding
3. Bone/joint pain
4. Fever or night sweats
5. Sleeping problems
6. Shortness of breathKnow the signs
