On Wednesday people affected by a diagnosis of CLL/SLL have the opportunity to come together around the globe with all groups involved in improving the clinical care, support and treatments of this blood cancer.
World CLL Day will give those affected by a diagnosis of CLL/SLL a much needed voice, raise awareness and improve understanding of the challenges involved in living with CLL/SLL and raise awareness about the vulnerability of CLL'SLL patients and other immune compromised people during the pandemic.
With CLL being the most common leukaemia, the number 1 and first day of Blood Cancer Awareness Month, 1st September was chosen by the international CLL community for World CLL Day.
WCLLD activity will also help build momentum towards other major National and International events involving the CLL community during Blood Cancer Awareness Month across the rest of September. Please join WCLLD and disseminate the news amongst your network and beyond. Please share as widely as possible and help.
Check out the website at wclld.org to learn more about this first ever World CLL Day, how to get involved and enable access to downloadable campaign materials for use in your Social Media posts and other online channels. World CLL Day Social Media materials have been created in different languages (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Macedonian, and Czech).
Please Join with us on Wednesday 1st September and become involved in the social media campaign.
