1 SEPTEMBER IS WORLD CLL DAY

Every 1 September, the global CLL community unites to raise awareness about Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) and give those affected by a diagnosis of CLL a much needed voice. On World CLL Day we come together to improve understanding of the vulnerability of CLL patients and the challenges involved in living with CLL.

Deborah (Canada)

“Most of my family understands that their vaccination protects me because of my poor immunity even though I’ve had the shots. Sadly, there are a few people I won’t be able to see because they won’t get vaccinated.”

David (Norway)

“My diagnosis of CLL means that my immune system doesn’t work properly. CLL is a chronic disease, which means it is a life-long issue. Thanks for helping protect me!”

Nick (UK)

“Any infection can cause severe adverse events for me. I don’t mount a response to vaccination myself and rely on the rest of society’s vaccination protections to help me live as near a normal life as is possible.”

Donna (United States)

“I have CLL, it does not have me. I’m more than my condition.”

Patricia (United States)

“I have CLL and my immune system doesn’t work properly. Please protect me and others like me by getting vaccinated. Your immunity protects me!”

Catherine (United States)

“It is hard to have no immune system during a pandemic. People have yelled at me when I wear a mask. They do not understand. Not everyone is strong.”

Jodi (United States)

“I have CLL and I wish that the careless behaviors of COVID non- believers, could walk in my shoes for just one day and see how scary it is.”
