Know AML marks Acute Myeloid Leukemia World Awareness Day 2021 and launches new animation series

After a great response to Acute Myeloid Leukemia World Awareness Day (AML WAD) in 2020, Know AML looks forward to commemorating AML WAD in 2021. This year, Know AML is also excited to be launching a new AML animation series for patients, families, and caregivers.

AML WAD will take place on April 21, 2021, with the aim to facilitate and improve knowledge of AML worldwide through collaborative participation. Know AML is excited to lead the campaign through a series of coordinated activities: Personalize it, Share it, Wear it, and Find it.

There are different ways to get involved in AML WAD, both on social media and through offline activities. Know AML would like to encourage everyone to participate! Personalize your social media profile using our digital banners; share our new animations with family and friends; wear red and black and share a selfie on social media; find AML-associated words in the Know AML word search puzzle, and share a selfie with your completed word search on social media. Our banners and word search puzzles are available in multiple languages, to get as many supporters as possible involved globally. Join the conversation on social media using the official hashtag #KnowAML. Visit for more information about how to participate.

On AML WAD, Know AML will launch a series of four new animations to provide information for patients with AML, families, and caregivers. Previous topics include an overview of AML, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, AML types, treatment overview, clinical trials, and remission. This year, Know AML have put together animations focused on relapse in AML, refractory AML, measurable residual disease, and risk stratification. These animations will be available for you to share on social media using the official hashtag #KnowAML. Please encourage your friends, family, and networks to do the same!
