On World Leukaemia Day, it feels a fitting moment,
To raise more awareness, of one of life’s big opponents.
Whilst the medics do a great job, and treatment is helping more.
There are still too many people who aren’t with us anymore.
The disease progresses quickly, with diagnosis sometimes not so easy.
With so many symptoms possible, maybe bruising or being wheezy.
So here’s to fundraising for research and raising more awareness.
To help against the fight, the suffering and the unfairness.
To all leukaemia fighters, I wish you health and feeling well.
I hope your blood is soon free of those nasty leukaemia cells.
