World Leukaemia Day is a global campaign run in collaboration by patient groups from across the globe. It’s the one day of the year people from all around the world can come together to help raise awareness of leukaemia. You can make a difference no matter who you are and where you live.
The non-specific signs and symptoms of leukaemia make it difficult to spot. There are over 300,000 deaths caused by leukaemia worldwide. Our campaign is vital as survival rates for leukaemia are lower than most common cancers.
We hope that by making people more aware of the signs and symptoms of leukaemia, we will encourage them to get seen by a healthcare professional. This will help reduce the numbers of preventable leukaemia deaths across the world and provide patients with greater outcomes.
We’ll be sharing ways for you to support the campaign soon… Watch this space!
