CML Buster Foundation: fierce patient advocates fighting for CML cancer research funding toward a cure and support of 120,000+ US CML patients and their families fighting for a better quality of life while living with CML. CMLBf.org Mission: To empower CML patients and their families to improve their quality of life. CMLBf.org Vision: A world in which CML patients live full abundant lives with dignity and hope for a cure. A new diagnosis of CML can be challenging for both the patient and his/her caregiver(s). Accepting the diagnosis, identifying resources, and determining a treatment plan can be overwhelming for the whole family.
Accurate and current CML information coupled with strong patient-physician communication can increase patient confidence and adherence to the treatment regimen. Both are essential to living well with a CML diagnosis.
Our long-standing history of CML and patient face-to-face support experience has shown that CML information is better received from a source familiar with that patients’ situation or another CML patient.
