September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month, and Know AML is encouraging the AML community and the general public to participate in the official Know AML awareness and educational activity: ‘Your Questions Answered’. Know AML is proud to lead this campaign, which will provide the opportunity for questions to be answered by a patient in remission, a carer, and a world-leading doctor in AML:
- Anna Mamwell was diagnosed with AML in 2015 and is in remission. She will answer questions on the signs and symptoms of AML and her experience of living with AML.
- Dorcas Hills cared for her husband who was diagnosed with AML in 2014. She will be answering questions on caring for someone who has AML.
- Dr Gail Roboz is a world-leading doctor in AML. Dr Roboz will answer questions about clinical trials in AML.
Know AML would like to encourage everyone to get involved. To learn more or to submit a question, please visit https://know-aml.com/en/get-involved/bcam
Throughout Blood Cancer Awareness Month, Know AML will publish a series of videos, via its social media channels, of the patient in remission, carer, and world-leading doctor in AML answering questions. Please share the videos from Know AML across social media channels using the official hashtags: #KnowAML #BloodCancerAwarenessMonth. Videos will also be made available through the get involved section of our website.
