Blood Cancer Awareness Month 2017

Publish Date: 1/9/2017

Leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma are all types of blood cancer and can develop in anyone, of any age, at any time. Another 35 Australians are diagnosed each and every day.

Although improved treatments and care are helping more people survive, sadly someone loses their life to blood cancer every two hours.

This September during Blood Cancer Awareness Month, we’re joining with the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Society and other international organisations to raise awareness and help change these statistics.

You can help by joining a Light the Night event in your local community and raise money to help provide life changing practical and emotional support in local communities – right across the country.

Join an event near you at lightthenight.org.au or call 1800 500 088.
