CML Awareness Day ™ – History and Buttons
In 2008, The CML Society of Canada came up with a great idea. What if we had a special day to raise awareness about all the wonderful discoveries that took place that drastically changed the course of this once always nearly fatal disease.
We thought if more of the world would know about it, then other patients suffering with other cancers would not lose hope.
With our leadership we are happy to report that other CML Patient Advocate groups around the world, now join us in celebrating CML Awareness Day™ with special events for patients in their countries.
As for Canada, we are the first country to get recognition from our government for our work and for raising awareness about CML and creating The CML Awareness Day ™
