The day of events:
The microsite www.worldbloodcancerday.org was launched to establish May 28th as “World Blood Cancer Day.” WBCD is an independent international day of events that aims to raise awareness of the fight against blood cancer and give people worldwide an opportunity to demonstrate solidarity with blood cancer patients. It was inaugurated by DKMS in 2014 with the goal of encouraging people all over the world to get involved and make their mark on behalf of patients. Every year on the 28th of May, stem cell donor centers and registries, transplantation centers, group initiatives and other helpers all over the world should join together to take action to draw the world’s attention to the theme of blood cancer, in order to recruit even more supporters to help fight this disease.
The red “&” sign, or ampersand, is the symbol of World Blood Cancer Day. It means that you & me together can defeat blood cancer. On May 28th, the “&” sign should be on display everywhere, connecting people in their commitment to the cause and their solidarity with patients. The universal call to action is: Make your mark! It is designed to encourage people to actively move the subject of blood cancer into the public spotlight.
You can publicize an event you are planning for WORLD BLOOD CANCER DAY on the website www.worldbloodcancerday.org, or upload a photo to the gallery.
Here you can really give your creativity free rein. Show your solidarity with blood cancer patients all over the world by organizing your own event for WBCD. Are you planning a bake sale to raise money for the fight against blood cancer? A flash mob to draw attention in your city to this life-threatening disease? Or even your own registration campaign? We are thrilled at any and every gesture, no matter how big or small! Become part of an international community and help us and patients across the globe to make the fight against blood cancer a higher priority in society.
