Together we maximize our life! Supporting others at the same time we are supporting ourselves…

We had another great meeting yesterday, at UMMC this time.

Attended by 80 participants – people living with CML, their family members, physicians, nurses and volunteers – everyone brought along their spirit and smile and be with everyone has made the day a special weekend.

Some are our old friends who never failed to attend every workshop; some are the new faces whom we met for the first time yesterday.

No matter they are old or new friends, from yesterday onwards, they know, there’s a place, a group, a family for everyone of them. This group is called Max Family.

There were experiences sharing, interaction among participants, education and discussion session facilitated by supportive physicians, enjoyable moment having meal and chit-chatting. Time flew quickly and we had no choice but have to end the meeting session at about 2pm.

One of the highlights was when Tony, one of our old friend who brought his guitar and sang for us. Tony, a young musician, a CML survivor who never gave up on his life, wrote a song for Max, and his stepmom, Pat during Oct 2007.

To all our dear friends, support doesn’t stop when yesterday’s meeting ended. In fact, for yesterday’s meeting could be a
beginning point for new friends to stay in touch, for old friends to
continue giving your support.

Please stay in touch by any possible means – phone calls, sms, emails, or even you are welcomed to drop your comments in this blog. We love to hear from you, we love to stay connect with you!

Last but the most important message – thank you, I don’t know what are the best word to express my sincere appreciation to the physicians, nurses, supporters, the volunteers who had sacrificed their weekend, spent their time with us, worked hard to make sure the meeting going on smoothly.

Muchas gracias!
