Prepare for World CML Day 2015

22nd of September is World CML Day. This year's motto is today, together and the entire CML community comes together to raise awareness on CML and the needs of patients around the world. Join us recognising World CML Day on 9/22! 

We celebrate the breakthroughs in treatment and management and also acknowledge what still needs to be done to make the best possible care available in all parts of the world. This is why we also reaffirm our efforts today to improve the outcomes for CML patients wherever they live, by supporting CML education, local access to diagnostics and best possible treatment through the iCMLf programs.
