Welcome 

 

If you, a family member, or a friend have been diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) you may have many questions. What does this diagnosis mean to me, or my loved ones? How will the diagnosis affect my life in the future? How can I best prepare for the next doctor’s visit? What are the most important questions to ask? How can I learn more about CML? What’s the latest scientific research? How can I learn from other patients?

Information is key. The more you know about CML the better prepared you are for life living with CML.

This new section of the iCMLf website offers valuable resources for patients with CML and the people who care for them. It is designed as a directory that links to reliable and useful patient-friendly information available on other trusted partner websites.

On the following pages you will:

  • Learn more about CML
  • Familiarise yourself with CML diagnosis & management
  • Learn about existing therapy options
  • Look into the world of CML research
  • Find out about important CML meetings for patients
  • Learn more about CML in children & young adults
  • Hear from other CML patients
  • Celebrate World CML Day
  • Find additional services & interesting links

The page is designed as a living document and will be regularly updated.

Source Information

There is a lot of valuable online content available to help CML patients better understand and manage their disease. The iCMLf does not want to duplicate this information. Instead, here, we provide an information hub where reliable up to date information for patients can be found. We link to available information from the following organisations and hope that this is a good starting point for your journey learning about CML.

We all share a common goal: to improve the outcomes for people with CML.

Visit the CML Advocates Network

The CML Advocates Network, founded in 2007, is both a virtual network and a web platform, now connecting 100 leukemia patient groups from 80 countries. The main objectives of the 'CML Advocates Network' are; to provide a worldwide web directory of CML patient groups, to allow patients to find national support groups in another country; to provide a communications platform for CML patient representatives, in order to share best practice in the field of cancer patient advocacy and to build a knowledge base on patient advocacy. The network is solely run by patient groups, and is maintained without any governmental or industry support.
