James Sunderland promotes Spot Leukaemia campaign

James Sunderland helps promote Leukaemia Care’s launch of their annual Spot Leukaemia campaign during Blood Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) in September.

Spot Leukaemia aims to raise awareness of the non-specific signs and symptoms of leukaemia to aid early diagnosis and save lives, as patients diagnosed via emergency routes have lower survival rates (1 month to 3 years) than those diagnosed earlier.

Spot Leukaemia is particularly important now as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose many challenges to the diagnosis of leukaemia. Reduced face-to-face medical appointments and public resistance to present to the doctor are barriers to early diagnosis

Early diagnosis saves lives.
