I was diagnosed with CML in 2009. Fortunately I've done really well and am able to lead a full and normal life. I'm grateful for all the help and encouragement I have received over the last six years, in particular from fellow patients on CMLSg.
After I was diagnosed, I scoured the internet for answers to all my questions. By far the richest source of information and help was CML Support. The advice from members has proved invaluable ever since. I really don't know what I would have done without them.
Diagnosis is a scary time, before your journey starts and these amazing drugs take effect. There is outdated, inaccurate information on the web. CML support was the place where I found a community of fellow patients, good information and advice, together with accurate helpful guidance and knowledge.
