It's difficult for you to hear that you or one of your family members have been diagnosed with CML. You will have many questions – and will be looking for answers. You may feel like you’re alone with your diagnosis, but there are many other people in all parts of the world coping with the disease.

There are several opportunities how you can get involved with other patients sharing your experiences and learning from other perspectives. You can watch videos with other people talking about their personal journey of living with CML or you can get in touch with other patients by sharing your experiences in one of the discussion forums for patients available.
