World CML Day LogoWorld CML Day 22/9 - visit the new iCMLf patient page

22nd of September (22/9) is World CML Day. This year’s theme is ‘Today, together. Improving access.’

The iCMLf, along with CML patients, patient organisations and the hematologists and scientists who treat CML around the world stand together. Today we raise awareness about CML, recognising what has already been achieved through breakthroughs in medicine, but also acknowledging that there are still huge challenges to meet for people living with CML. This is especially true in regions with limited access to high-quality diagnostics and therapies.

November 2017 - With our mission to improve the outcomes for patients with CML globally, part of the iCMLf's mandate is to recognise and reward outstanding achievements and contributions to the management and understanding of CML around the world. GoldmanPrize medal RGB reducTo this end the iCMLf awards three prizes each year. We welcome your ideas and input to who should receive these prestigious awards in 2018. You can nominate for one, two or all of the prizes below:
