Blood Cancer Awareness

  • Make Blood Cancer Visible
  • September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month

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.
