Help cure cancer. Be active. Make new friends. Achieve a goal.
CML Busters is a Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia support group. Founded 11/2003, we meet every second Monday of every month at the offices of the LLS in Orange, CA. Our mission is to provide direct support from current CML patients to other CML patients and their caregivers. At our meeting we discuss: all CML protocols, handling of the unique emotional and physical needs resulting from those protocols, supporting studies and progress in the treatment of CML, side effects and how to deal with them and ANY related subjects.
As a team we are participating in the 5k Challenge with Team In Training and raising funds for the LLS Mission! The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. LLS's mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Since the first funding in 1954, LLS has awarded more than $680 million in research funding.
