john goldmanRemembering John Goldman

It is with great sorrow that the iCMLf has learned of the death of Professor John Goldman, after a short illness. 

With a worldwide reputation in the study of the biology and treatment of CML John was a true leader, teacher and inspiration to so many. He constantly sought to share his knowledge and experience for the improvement of the treatment of CML globally. So many people with CML are with us now and have benefited from his tireless efforts.

John was one of the cofounders and a visionary of the International CML Foundation. His legacy will live on through the direction set by his leadership as our chairman and it is in his honor we continue.

We share your feelings of deep loss of a colleague, mentor, friend and gentleman.

John, we will miss your wisdom, humor and thoughtfulness.

On behalf of the iCMLf Directors,
