Support Andy on his Climb For a Cure journey!

CML patients across the globe can often have their world overshadowed by the challenges of the disease, but in this world emerge individuals whose resilience and spirit shine as beacons of hope. Such as one extraordinary soul, Andy Ojelabi, a courageous CML patient from Nigeria. Andy's story starts in 2015, when life took an unexpected turn upon receiving his devastating diagnosis of CML, which he describes as "the day everything stopped." However, Andy kept moving, and continues to move for all the people in his country living with CML - those who have been diagnosed and the many who can’t get a diagnosis.

We are pleased to announce the next instalment of our region program to address specific local challenges for physicians treating people with CML. We are extending our impact to physicians across Africa, with 3 African Regional Discussion Groups.

WCMDay 2023September 2023 - Today on 9/22, the worldwide community unites to celebrate “World CML Day’. This year’s theme is ‘Putting a spotlight on CML – Leaving no one behind’ to ensure that all those living with CML have equal opportunities for early detection, proper diagnosis, and treatment.

This is core to the heart of the Foundation’s mission to improve the outcomes for patients with CML globally.

The iCMLf is collaborating closely with local medical associations in low- and middle-income countries to share world-class CML education and best practice for those treating CML. Celebrating World CML Day today, we are very pleased to support three outstanding local scientific webinars on CML for haematologists from leading local centres in Kenya, Bangladesh and Brazil.

The iCMLf team Climbs for a Cure in Nepal in November, trekking to over 4,000m at Annapurna Base Camp. We also take the opportunity to continue the other major part of the work of the iCMLf while we are there - Sharing CML knowledge and expertise to raise the capacity of CML treatment around the world.

Preliminary program now availableSeptember 2023 - There is only one month until the 2023 Annual John Goldman Conference on CML: Biology and Therapy – jointly organized by the European School of Haematology (ESH) and the International CML Foundation (iCMLf.) And we hope to see you there!

From October 6-8, 2023 experts in CML research and practice from all over the world will come together in Mandelieu La-Napoule in France to hear about the latest basic, translational and clinical research in CML.

Today we share just some of the highlights of the scientific program with you.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the conference.

We are delighted to present the latest module in the iCMLf Knowledge Centre: "Management of Advanced Phase CML."
