Canada: CML ZERO CLUB
A Zero Club number is assigned to each patient that reaches CCR in their CML treatment. I started assigning Zero Club numbers the day I took my first dose of STI571 (Gleevec) on March 29, 2001 as part of the expanded access trial at OHSU in Portland, Oregon. Six months later I became # 102 in my own Zero Club. I consider myself truly blessed.
Organizational objectives and key programs
To assist CML patients with their journey on their CML trip. This includes locating a CML specialist in their area, pointing the patient to organizations that provide free medication for their CML, moderating an on-line chat on a weekly basis, reporting new discoveries to the on-line support groups, organizing patient meetings in Ottawa, Florida and other parts of the world that I travel to.
