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.
This year Blood Cancer Awareness Month will see the launch of a new Leukaemia Foundation report and response that will help steer Australia to a future where zero lives are lost to blood cancer.
The Leukaemia Foundation will be asking everyone to share their blood cancer story, whatever it may be, to help empower others and show that every life counts. Visit us in September for the chance to leave your story alongside those of others.
September is also the perfect time to join the fight against blood cancer – and there are so many ways to help. Get started here.
Share the blood cancer story
You can share your story or show your support for Blood Cancer Awareness Month on social media using using #BloodCancerAwarenessMonth and #BloodCancer – and don’t forget to tag the Leukaemia Foundation so we can say hi! We’ll have new social media resources for you to use in 2019, so check back here before September.
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.
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.Last updated on August 2nd, 2019
