September World Leukemia Awareness Month

posted in: Other Events | 0

In the Philippines, September is widely remembered for the infamous declaration of Martial Law that ushered a dark period in the history of this nation.

Yet hardly does anyone know that September is observed globally as the World Leukemia Awareness Month (WLAM).

Leukemia, for many is a dreaded disease.

But not much is really known about Leukemia.

Here in the Philippines, there is a non profit and Christ-centered organization advocating and devoted to helping patients stricken with leukemia.

This organization is called EPCALM Adult Leukemia Foundation of the Philippines Inc.

This year marks the first time that World Leukemia Awareness Month is celebrated locally.
