Join our #Likes4Leuka campaign!

Show your support and raise funds for Leuka by donating £3 and painting your thumbnail red this Blood Cancer Awareness Month. 

In 2014 the on-line designer fashion retailer Net-A-Porter named Leuka as their staff "Charity of the Year" after a colleague was diagnosed with leukaemia.

Hannah Nesbitt-Smith, Chair of their Charity Committee says: 

 "We really wanted to do all we could in support of our colleague and friend. When we found out it was Blood Cancer Awareness Month in September, we decided to try and start something that anyone and everyone could join in with, to show support to ALL those who have been affected by blood cancer. I'd like to also thank our friends from Nails inc who are delighted to come along and help launch the campaign."

THE CONCEPT

#Likes4Leuka is so simple, yet so powerful:

1. Grab your favourite red nail varnish and paint your thumbnail red (it really doesn't matter which one)

2. Donate £3 (or however much you wish) via this campaign page or, if you're in the UK, you can text "LIKE15 £3" to 70070 to donate

3. Tell your friends, family and colleagues to do the same, show off your red thumbnail with a selfie on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram to help spread the word. Even challenge the men in your life to take part!

THE CAUSE

The short video on this page is of a young actor and model called Fabian Bolin. Fabian was diagnosed with leukaemia on the 1st July 2015. Feeling that people are stronger together, Fabian decided to write a blog sharing his journey of his illness and treatment. (Please be aware, some aspects of this video may be difficult to watch).

His honest and compelling account of his day to day life is read by over 100,000 each day and gives many strength to cope with their or their loves ones cancer diagnoses. Fabian is a strong supporter of Leuka and you can follow his blog at www.fabianbolin.com

  • There are 137 types of blood cancer
  • Every 20 min someone in the UK is diagnosed with a blood cancer
  • Dispite major advances in treatment a "cure all" does not yet exist
  • Leukaemia research could be the key to curing other cancers

TOGETHER A CURE FOR CANCER IS WITHIN OUR REACH
