National CML Day
For many of us diagnosed with CML, our life long battle consists of daily medication; this medication is designed to control, not cure CML.
Since there is no rhyme nor reason, as to "if and when" CML will gain the upper hand and wreak havoc on its' host, I try to live each and every day to its' fullest, be grateful for the opportunity to still be alive and as a way to give back, I like to participate in the yearly fundraiser, Light the Night, sponsored by the Lymphoma Leukemia Society.
I hope and pray that some day there will be a cure for CML, and when this cure is found that the research leads to cures for many others cancers, as well.
Last year was the first year that we ever did any type of fundraising: we raised $2000! I was so grateful for the efforts of so many friends and family, and so humbled by your support. It is our goal to raise $2000 again this year.
Please donate if you are able; we are currently at 51% of our goal!
Living with CML is tough, but with your support and encouragement, I remain tougher!!
