Blood cancers affect the production and function of blood cells. Most of these cancers start in bone marrow, where blood is made. The most common are leukaemia, lymphoma, and myeloma.

Throughout September the campaign will share stories of people affected by the disease.

Every 27 minutes someone is diagnosed with lymphoma and so Lymphoma Action wants everyone affected to know that we are here for them, and there are 4 ways in which you can become involved throughout September,

  1. 1.     Order the awareness pack using the form

 

https://lymphoma-action.org.uk/get-involved-campaigning/blood-cancer-awareness-month-2019

 

The pack includes posters for you to display at your GP surgery, local supermarket, library, community centre or even in your own front window. Or you could hold a lymphoma awareness stand in your local hospital, shopping centre or work place
 

  1. Follow Lymphoma Action on social media and share, like and comment on all social media posts throughout the month - but especially on World Lymphoma Awareness Day on Sunday 15 September. The more you share, like and comment the further the message will travel and the higher the campaign profile will be raised!

  2. Tell five people who have never heard of lymphoma, what it is. This can be friends, family or work colleagues. The more people who know about lymphoma, the quicker people can get diagnosed and treated. The awareness pack includes postcards with the most common symptoms, you can also download posters here.
     
  3. Support the Lymphoma Aware 27 in 27 campaign and raise £27 in 27 days, however you like! By taking part you will not only help spread the message that someone is diagnosed with lymphoma in the UK every 27 minutes, you will also raise vital funds to support their work.

together we make sure no one faces lymphoma alone!’
