3 months to World Leukemia Day !
World Leukemia Day on 4th September is a yearly global campaign started by Leukemia Care in collaboration with patient groups 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 leukemia. By raising awareness of leukaemia and educating the world on the signs and symptoms of the condition, we can work together to help leukaemia patients get diagnosed and provide better outcomes for them. You can make a difference no matter who you are and where you live.
Leukaemia is the 13th most common cancer in the world. Over 437,000 people are diagnosed with leukaemia each year, that’s over 1000 people every day. However, the non-specific signs and symptoms make it difficult to spot. There are over 300,000 deaths caused by leukaemia worldwide.
Our campaign is vital because survival rates for leukaemia are significantly lower than most common cancers and these rates are worsened by the high rates of emergency diagnosis.
– By raising awareness of leukemia and educating the world on the signs and symptoms of this condition, we can work together to help leukemia patients get diagnosed and provide better outcomes for them. You can make a difference no matter who you are and where you live.
– Encourage people to get seen by a healthcare professional – This will help reduce the numbers of preventable leukemia deaths across the world and provide patients with greater outcomes.
