We celebrate International CML Awareness Day on 9/22, the 22 September!!

9/22 represents the genetic change of Chromosomes 9 and 22 that causes Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML). This September 22 (9/22), patient organisations across the world unite to raise awareness of the needs of patients living with CML.

More than 1800 individuals from 53 countries have signed the proclamation, and almost 130 photos were submitted as "Faces of CML". Please have a look at the photos, which include the longest survivor with CML (34 years), two babies born by parents with CML, a CML patient with birthdate 9/22, a group that was celebrating 9/22 with a cake carrying the International CML Awareness Day logo, a marathon ironman with CML, and many more -- very impressive!

Many things are happening today: Patient groups around the world are organizing impressive activities in their countries today, ranging from releasing awareness videos, holding press conferences, fundraising and awareness events and meetings with key experts and politicians. About 400 haematologists meet in Portugal to review the newest curative approaches at the conference "CML - Biology and Therapy" - starting on 9/22!
