When we honor World CML Day, we do it for all of us across the globe!

Friends around the world living with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and loved ones, World CML Day, September 22nd is YOUR day.  And it is also a day for all of us.  It is a day for those of us who live with the disease day-in-and-day-out because it is a time when the entire global CML community comes together to raise awareness and call for access to the best treatment and care for all people facing CML.  In that way, it is a moment of advocacy mixed with heart because we are enjoined for a common cause.  At the same time, when we make our voices heard around the importance of our rights to treatment and support, we acknowledge the very human right to walk through life with the prospect of good health and social equity for all people.

On September 22nd, we take a collective breath knowing that we share the same life force.  As we breathe in, we appreciate how far we have come within the field of CML, living such cherished lives.  As we exhale, we remember how far we have to go to ensure that all of our friends, in countries near and far, live with dignity and hope.  All the while, we feel gratitude and strength knowing that our collective breath is a force to be reckoned with!

Best wishes on World CML Day to you and yours!

Your friends at The Max Foundation

2014 Multiple Myeloma Patient Meeting in Thailand

Today's blog comes from Piyapong, our MaxStation in Thailand!

Piyapong helped organize this year's Multiple Myeloma Patient Meeting in Bangkok to provide education, support and camaraderie to myeloma patients in Thailand. This year's meeting was very successful and patients derived great benefits from the sessions provided and from the opportunity to meet others facing similar challenges.

This meeting is one in a series of myeloma meetings and workshops throughout Thailand. Our team in Thailand is excited to share them with you!

Children's day: Full of magic and fun!

“I'm very thankful… for giving us a morning full of love, fun, and happiness to all the patients who were there,” expressed Estefany Green, our MaxStation in Mexico and who organized “Laughter Therapy.”

“Laughter Therapy” was held at Instituto Nacional de Pediatria in Mexico City, where patients, family, doctors and friends got together to celebrate Children’s Day. The event was full of smiles and hugs and our main guests, our patients, were able to enjoy it to the fullest!

Many events created by Max team members are meant to remind us that we can have fun and build a community together.  “Laughter Therapy” was created with the purpose of having some time to forget about our adversities in life, and instead, to celebrate that we have one another. From balloons to books and stories this event was a very happy day for many of us!

We invite you to read Estefany's full blog and to share with us in this meaningful event!
