Brief description of organisation:

ALMA (Asociación de Leucemia Mieloide Argentina) is a non-profit organization that was approved by Argentina's General Inspection of Justice with the number 000465.

Those of us who are a part of ALMA's core are mostly CML patients who met during patient meetings organized by The Max Foundation's MaxStation in Argentina, and in the hallways of different hospitals and clinics.

Our key objectives are:

  • To give and receive emotional and practical support to CML patients and caregivers.
  • To exchange and receive information about the different treatment options available to CML patients.
  • To organize educational presentations by professionals from different specialties.
  • To advocate for the right of CML patients to receive the best treatment for their condition.
