BC Place glows red for Blood Cancer Awareness Month

September 12th, 2018

BC Place will light up red tonight, September 12th to support Blood Cancer Awareness Month.

Blood cancers are cancers of the blood, bone marrow or lymph nodes that affect normal blood cell production or function.

Blood cancer can affect anyone, at any time. Approximately every 25 minutes one person in Canada is diagnosed with a blood cancer.

There is no way to prevent or screen for blood cancers so researchers are focused on finding cures and raising awareness.
