September was designated as National Blood Cancer Awareness Month in 2010 by the United States Congress.
In recognition of Blood Cancer Awareness Month, the Leukemia Research Foundation is conducting a social media initiative called The Heroes Among Us to increase awareness about all blood cancers, including leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and myelodysplastic syndromes.
Here's how you can help!
Approximately every 3 minutes one person in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer. That means that during September, Blood Cancer Awareness Month, more than 14,000 people will informed that they have one of these terrible diseases. Please donate today to help us continue to raise awareness and funding for research and patient programs.
