[This] is Blood Cancer Awareness Month


More people are being diagnosed with and losing their lives to blood cancer in Australia and right around the world each year. 

We know that people with blood cancer have the best chance of surviving and living well when they’re diagnosed quickly and treated with the best medicines.   

Blood cancer is Australia’s second most diagnosed cancer, but it’s not on people’s radar in the same way as breast cancer, melanoma or prostate cancer.

This low awareness is a world-wide problem and that’s why the Leukaemia Foundation has united with our colleagues in the United Kingdom, America, Canada and New Zealand to get the blood cancer message out to as many people as possible. 

We can’t do this alone. 

Please help us spread the message through sharing some really important information about blood cancer with your family, with your friends and everyone you know.
