October 2018 - On our recently launched patient page, we provide an information hub where reliable up to date information for patients can be found. We link to available patient-friendly information from patient and medical organisations and hope that this is a good starting point for a patient’s journey learning about and living with CML.
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.
