“Today, together, for a CML free world.”
Every year in 22nd September the CML global community lead by the CML patient Advocates holds the World CML Day. 9/22 represents the genetic change of Chromosomes 9 and 22 that is the cause of Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML).
Since 2011, the worldwide community unites to celebrate “World CML Day” on September 22 (9/22). This date has been chosen for global and local CML awareness activities adding symbolic significance to the events, projects and campaigns.
This year for the 12th time, we call all our members to join the international movement “Today, together, for a CML free world” by organizing awareness activities, from small gatherings or social media posts to large-scale events.
22nd September is a day for CML organization to make the general public, patients and relatives, health care providers and policymakers aware about what living with chronic myeloid leukemia means and which are the main concerns, needs as well as several challenges that people living whit this kind of leukemia face every day.
