WORLD CLL DAY on 1 September 2021
On 1st of September the CLL community is launching World CLL Day to give those affected by a diagnosis of CLL a much needed voice, raise awareness and improve understanding of the challenges involved in living with CLL. This is an opportunity to come together and raise awareness about the vulnerability of CLL patients and other immune compromised people during the pandemic.
On this first World CLL Day, we wish to send a message of THANKS to those with healthy immunities for protecting our community. During the COVID-19 pandemic many people experienced isolation, fear and the difficulty of keeping safe – an insight into the life of a CLL patient. The umbrella, a form of shield, is chosen as the central campaign image. You can hold it over someone else, emphasising the aspect of proactive choice to protect.
