It is with great sadness that we share that our friend, colleague, and CML patient advocate Trevor Steyn passed away on 9th November 2021 at the age of 63.

CML Advocates Network loses a friend, a CML patient for over 32 years and also a very active patient advocate, leading the CML patient organisation CML SA founded in 2013 to offer up-to-date information, emotional support and advocacy on behalf of all CML patients in South Africa.

Trevor was a very smart person, someone who was very outspoken at our network meetings with very well reflected questions, and such a wonderful and caring individual. In words of our colleague Bahija Gouimi from AMAL, Morocco, “We lost a devoted leader and a great friend. I will really miss you calling me my dear Sister. Know that you’re unforgettable. I will really miss you. I send my prayers and support to Delphine, your amazing wife and your family during this difficult time.”
