I've had CML now for 6 years and never wanted to know anything about it, but I do know. The 3rd Chemo pill that is on the market that I just had to stop taking because I got "Sweets syndrome" but on the 4th they just approved the 4th Chemo pill and I started taking it 3 days ago. I would like to get more Involed with my cancer and somehow help out when needed. I'm just going by this event that just went on and would like to know any future events.

Thank you,
