Brief description of organization
The Association for Blood Cancer Patients Aid was established in 2006. The most member (over 90 %) of our Organisation are the patients with CML. The main goal of our daily activity is to help the CML patients and their families. Our role in helping is especially important in the case of the new patients with CML and we organized for them the supporting group of the well educated volunteers. We are active in the Eastern part of Poland and we have contact with the CML patients living in Ukraine and Belorus not far from the border. We cooperate very closely with other Polish CML patients organisations in the area of education of different aspects of this disease and we would like to expand our activity on the international area and cooperate with other CML patients organisation in the different countries.
