Wakefield Town Hall to light-up orange in support of those affected by AML

Wakefield Council is lighting up the Clock Tower at Wakefield Town Hall in orange on Wednesday 21 April in recognition of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) World Awareness Day.

The condition has been brought into the spotlight by the plight of eight- month-old Azaylia Cain whose brave health battle has touched many people’s hearts.

AML World Awareness Day is held each year to highlight the disease, to share knowledge and improve understanding of it and to support all those affected by it worldwide.

Cllr Michael Graham, Cabinet Member for Resources at Wakefield Council said: “We are pleased to help support this global awareness day, to raise awareness of this rare condition and to highlight the need for support for everyone who is affected.

“Whether it’s the person who’s been diagnosed, their family and friends – our thoughts are with all of those affected, including Azaylia and her family.”

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is a rare cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow. AML World Awareness Day on 21 April is the one day of the year that people from all around the world can come together to help raise awareness of this cancer.
