We like to share with you a personal perspective on this topic and invite you to listen to an interview with Jan Geissler on stopping CML treatment after remission conducted during the 2014 American Society of Hematology (ASH) annual meeting by Patient Power. Jan is a patient advocate, living with CML since 2001. Like other CML patients in deep remission, Jan stopped treatment. He shares his perspective on his latest treatment decision, what it means for others with CML, and why he’s hopeful about the future.
