To all of you living with CML I wish a happy and healthy new year. I have been grateful for this site since my recent diagnosis, for the help, advice and support that this group offers.

Hi:  You will have a good 2013, as you learn more about how this CML works.  I have missed so many new people who have joined because I have been without a computer, but go into the New Year knowing that this is one of the most treatable forms of Leukemia.  Dec.12, 2012 was 14 years for me Living With This Disease.  I hope this helps you to think positive thoughts.  Its all so new to you even after 4 months.  I wish you the best. Happy Healthy New Year.
