World Leukemia Day 2020

Save the date! World Leukemia Day is on 4th September. Keep your eyes peeled on how to get involved!

Across the world over 437,000 people are diagnosed with leukaemia every year. However, awareness for leukaemia is dangerously low. We need your help in reaching people across the world so that everyone is able to spot leukemia. 

On 4th September 2020, we want people around the globe to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms for a cancer that causes over 300,000 deaths per year across the world. 

Raising awareness globally brings greater public knowledge of the signs and symptoms of leukemia leading to improved patient outcomes after diagnosis. This can considerably impact chances of survival and provide a better quality of life.

With your support, we can raise awareness around the world for a cancer that people don’t know how to spot and provide better outcomes for leukemia patients.  

Can you spot leukemia? Act now.

Spot the signs

It is important to be aware of the leukaemia symptoms and recognise what isn’t normal for your body, even if you aren’t sure what is wrong with you. If you or someone you know are concerned about potential symptoms, contact your GP and request a blood test.
