Blood Cancer Awareness Month

Research has the power to change lives

This Blood Cancer Awareness Month, Leukaemia UK is raising awareness of the disease and its signs and symptoms; bringing together the leukaemia research community to accelerate progress through life-changing research; and raising money to make sure that the next person diagnosed has the best possible experience of diagnosis, treatment and care.

Blood cancer is the fifth most common and third greatest cancer killer in the UK and Every 16 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with blood cancer.

Every day 27 people are newly diagnosed with leukaemia – a type of blood cancer – and sadly 13 people lose their lives. 

Despite decades of progress, only half of leukaemia patients live longer than five years after their diagnosis. We won’t stop until we change this. Read about our plans this September, and find out how you can get involved in Blood Cancer Awareness Month and join us in stopping leukaemia devastating lives.
