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.
“I’ll continue to wear a mask, avoid crowds, get additional vaccine doses, sanitize my hands frequently and hope others will also, to protect me from COVID-19.”
“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!”
“The pandemic is not over for people living with CLL, a type of cancer of the immune system. I wish to get on board with the rest of society post lock down and ask my government to provide the immune compromised community access to effective COVID -19 therapies and ask people in general to consider why I may be wearing a mask when in public and to give me room.”
Donna (United States)
“I have CLL, it does not have me. I’m more than my condition.”
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.”
