Approximately every 3 minutes one person in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer. That means around 14,000 patients will receive this diagnosis during September, Blood Cancer Awareness Month.

September was designated as National Blood Cancer Awareness Month in 2010 by the United States Congress.

In recognition of Blood Cancer Awareness Month, the LRF is conducting a social media campaign to increase awareness about all blood cancers, including leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and myelodysplastic syndromes. Our Facebook page will have facts about blood cancers, resources for patients and caregivers, as well as uplifting stories from survivors and researchers. You will have the opportunity to share, mention and comment on our posts. Please follow us on Facebook and click below to join us on Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn.

Please donate today to help us continue to raise awareness and funding for research and patient programs.
