Blood Cancer Awareness Month
Blood Cancer Awareness Month is an international event that has been helping to tell the story of blood cancer each September since 2010.
As Australia’s blood cancer charity, the Leukaemia Foundation stands together with the world’s blood cancer community in support of this important awareness month.
You can help tell Australia’s blood cancer story in three simple ways:
Share your blood cancer story, whatever it may be, to help empower others and show that every life counts. We’ll add everyone’s story to our new story wall.
Help spread awareness about blood cancer on social media using our new resource library here. Don’t forget to tag the Leukaemia Foundation and use #MyLifeCounts and #BloodCancerAwarenessMonth in your posts and stories.
September is also the perfect time to take a stand against blood cancer by registering for our Light the Night event, which will see the blood cancer community walk together at locations across Australia.
The Leukaemia Foundation is Australia’s blood cancer charity. We work together with the community to help more people with any blood cancer or related blood disorder survive and live a better-quality life.
This year Blood Cancer Awareness Month will see the launch of our new report and response called My Life Counts that will help steer Australia to a future where zero lives are lost to blood cancer. You’ll find a link to the report here when it’s published on Sunday 1 September.
September is also home to Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, World Lymphoma Awareness Day on September 15 and Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia Day on September 22, and the Leukaemia Foundation will be marking each of these important events, too. You can follow us here on Facebook and Instagram.
