Acute Myeloid Leukemia World Awareness Day is the one day of the year when people from all around the world come together to help raise awareness of this cancer.




Days left until
Acute Myeloid Leukemia World Awareness Day


If you are an acute myeloid leukemia patient, caregiver, friend, family member, patient advocate, healthcare professional, or a healthcare organization, join the collective voice and advocate that acute myeloid leukemia is a cancer that can’t be ignored.

We appreciate that everyone supporting Acute Myeloid Leukemia World Awareness Day has different priorities, so we have a selection of ways you can get involved. All activities in this guide are quick, easy, and cost-effective to implement. Get involved in any way you can!

On April 21, 2022, Know AML is running an education and awareness campaign called Know your diet. The campaign aims to raise awareness of acute myeloid leukemia and educate people on:

  • How to maintain a healthy diet to support your cancer treatment
  • How bacteria in the gut can change when someone has acute myeloid leukemia
  • What gut bacteria are known to affect the body’s immune response
  • How bacteria can change in response to therapy
  • Why the diversity of gut bacteria has been linked to infection risk and overall survival

To show your support for Acute Myeloid Leukemia World Awareness Day, download and share the following materials from the ‘Resources’ to your social media channels using the official hashtag #KnowAML:

  • Know your diet’ expert interviews (or like, share or comment on them from the Know AML social media channels when they are posted on April 21)
  • Educational poster
  • Acute Myeloid Leukemia World Awareness Day social media graphics

If you don’t have social media or would like to get involved offline, read our briefing guide for information on how you can still get involved.

We’d really appreciate your feedback to help us to continuously improve our campaigns. Before we get started with our campaign, please let us know a little bit about your current understanding of how gut bacteria can change as a result of acute myeloid leukemia and cancer treatments: Acute Myeloid Leukemia World Awareness Day Know Your Diet.

Thank you very much for your involvement and continued support of Know AML.
