End of 2020, our long-standing CML-CAB member Rita O. Christensen (CML patient and Chairman of LyLe – patient group for lymphoma, leukemia and MDS based in Denmark) decided to step down from CML-CAB and other voluntary positions for personal reasons. Rita is an engaged advocate with plenty of experience and determination. While she is stepping down from her commitments on the global level, she will remain acting as chairman of LyLe and thus continue her important work on the national level. We will miss Rita both as wonderful person as well as professional and thoughtful advocate. On behalf of CML-CAB and the whole CML community, a big THANK YOU, Rita, for supporting us in the fight against CML!
At the same time, it is our great pleasure to welcome a new CML-CAB member, Gerald Clements (whom we all know as "Jerry") who joined the CML-CAB team end of January 2021. Jerry is Co-Founder / Treasurer/ CFO at the CML Buster Foundation based in USA. Please join us in welcoming Jerry! Thank you, Jerry, for putting your 20 years of experience at the communities´ disposal within the framework of CML-CAB.
