Council joins campaign for awareness of acute myeloid leukaemia

22 April 2021

Chester Town Hall and Newgate will be illuminated orange for two nights from Monday 26 April, to raise awareness of acute myeloid leukaemia, with the help of Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Street Lighting team.

Buildings and attractions around the world have also been lit up in support of Azalyia Diamond Cain, who is battling the aggressive form of leukaemia. Ex-Coventry City player Ashley Cain and partner Safiyya Vorajee have been told their eight-month old baby daughter's brain tumour cannot be treated.
Niagara Falls, CN Tower in Toronto, Gateshead Milliennium Bridge and Blackpool Tower are among the buildings that have been lit orange to raise awareness of the disease.

The Council's Director of Environment and Communities, Maria Byrne said: "I'm pleased our Street Lighting team has been able to arrange this, to honour all families facing this rare and aggressive disease. We hope that our support helps to raise further awareness of acute myeloid leukaemia and the moving story of Azaylia Cain's battle with this disease."
