Blood Cancer Awareness
September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month. Though there has been a lot of progress in treating blood cancer, it remains the 4th most common cause of cancer-related death in Ireland. Through our awareness campaign we want more people to be aware of the impact of blood cancers and spot the signs and symptoms so they can be diagnosed and treated earlier. Learn more about blood cancers.
The Irish Cancer Society is working with Chronic Lymphocitic Leukaemia Ireland (CLLI), Multiple Myeloma Ireland and Janssen to forge a coalition of support for blood cancer patients across Ireland and raise awareness.
Blood cancer refers to any number of different types of cancer that affect the blood, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Learn all about these different types of blood cancers including incidence rates and signs and symptoms.
