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.
In the early days, the CML Support community helped explain my illness, armed me with knowledge so I could better talk to my doctor and provided a compassionate place to share my problems. Outside of family, it continues to provide me my single biggest support through my CML journey.
I have found the cml support group invaluable. All the questions (including those I'd never thought of) and answers are there. It is so encouraging to know other people have similar experiences of living with cml, and the diagnosis is not the end of the world.
