Team 922 at the ING, NYC Marathon!
Each day, the National CML (Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia) Society works to assist anyone in the United States who has been diagnosed with CML. We work to ensure that patients have the information they need to make informed decisions on their care, access to the leading specialists treating the disease, and to connect them with available resources. While doing so provides a way to learn about living with the disease, it often does not take away the anxiety when one learns that the life-saving drugs used to treat this disease are not covered as many cancer therapies are covered. Rather, they are covered under one's prescription drug plan (if insured), leaving the patient with exorbitant co-pays and more. Those without insurance are left to the mercies of patient assistance programs, charity programs, and at times, even the roof over their heads.
Please help us develop and grow our own assistance program by sponsoring our Team 922 runners. In doing so, you can help us better meet the needs of our community!
All funds raised through this effort go directly to patient assistance needs. No administrative cost are taken from these funds.
Thanking you in advance!
