Posted by rob on August 9, 2004 under Uncategorized | Be the First to Comment

Since it was founded in 1997, the CML Support Group has been the best source of information and support for Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML) patients worldwide. Many of the patients from the group have been among the first patient pioneers to participate in clinical trials for Gleevec and other new treatment methods for CML. The group also operates CML Meetup which provides local monthly support group meetings in over 60 counties and CML Support News which provides a daily newsfeed of the latest medical articles and information on CML research and treatment methods. Tremendous progress has been made in the treatment of Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (aka as Chronic myeloid leukaemia) and new treatment methods are under development. 

If you are a patient, caregiver, or professional who is interested in being a part of the largest network for CML we encourage you to join our online support group and to sign up for local CML support group meetings in your own community.

Carlos Valencia (1988-2004)

“Our whole world is gone.”

Those words spoken by a grieving Ford Valencia just moments after his 16-year-old son, Carlos, died at University Medical Center.

Many Tucsonans will remember “Carlitos” as the young man whose willingness to publicly share his battle with leukemia brought out thousands to join a national bone marrow registry. That in hopes of finding a match that would save his life.

Carlos had been in a coma, however, since July 23rd. He died Sunday night from complications related to his four-year battle with leukemia.
