Hi everyone,

I'm not sure how much everyone has heard about this, but there are some CML advocates who are going to be in Washington DC on Tuesday Sept 20th to meet with congressional leaders on a variety of issues that impact us; insurance & costs, access to clinical trials, etc.  One of the agenda items that I read about is the Drug Parity Act of 2011 ... which has been a topic on this board.

If you're interested in it, there's information on the National CML Society website (which I believe is a CML-referring organization by the LLS), including a page where you can author up and submit your CML story so the advocates can have these in hand to help make an even bigger impact.  I imagine that a volume of personal CML stories will help their advocacy work resonate better in Washington.

Thought this might be helpful to share.....
