How to get involved

On Saturday 4th September 2021, patient groups from across the world will unite to raise awareness of leukemia. We would love you to get involved too and have listed how you can below. 

1. Share your leukemia story

On 4th September, why not share your leukemia story on social media and use the hashtags #WLD21 or #WorldLeukemiaDay.
To make your story even more engaging, why not a picture of you before diagnosis? 
Story template: 
My name is <name> and when I was <age at diagnosis> I was diagnosed with <type> leukemia. Before diagnosis I had the following symptoms <delete as appropriate> fatigue, bruising or bleeding, night sweats, frequent infections, weight loss, feeling weak or breathless. I didn't know these were signs of a leukemia. This world leukemia day, I am asking five people from my friends and family to share this message to raise awareness of this blood cancer. #WLD21 #WorldLeukemiaDay #SpotLeukaemia
