Brief description of organization:

The Romanian Rare Cancers Association (ARCrare) was established in June 2011 in order to represent people affected by rare cancers, their families, organizations and professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of the rare cancers in Romania. They organize dedicated workshops and conferences throughout the year and have separate workshops just for CML patients (including a caravan in different regions in cooperation with other organizations). Through these workshops, they offer advice on how to manage CML and the challenges they face. Psychosocial counseling, legal and medical advice. A telephone helpline for their CML patients.

They have also arranged dedicated sessions on CML within the program of the following events organized by them;

  • ·Rare Diseases School for Journalists (including last year) 
  • ·Europlan Conferences 
  • ·Rare Diseases Day Conferences. 

Because of their lobbying, ARCrare has succeeded to have no patients on the waiting list for treatment since 2014. They currently have on their positive list access to Imatinib, Dasatinib, and Nilotinib.

ARCrare has participated every year in the World CML Day since 2011 with different types of events and topics each year to commemorate World CML Day.

Vision: A world where people affected by rare cancers have equal access to information, early diagnosis and appropriate treatment and are integrated into the community.
