    Hi, I’m Subsah, age 39 yrs, presently at Ambala, Haryana. I was diagnosed with CML-CP on 18.04.2016. Since then, I’m on treatment from the TATA Memorial Centre, Mumbai. Right now, I’m on Imatinib-400mg daily dosage. There are side effects, both physical and emotional, which I’ve been dealing to some extent. However, since the diagnose, life remains a daily fight.
    Please advise how can I join the group and the nearest place I can join. Wishing good luck to all the fighters!

    As the mother of a recently diagnosed 16 yr. old it touches my heart to read Max´s story. I would like to thank the Max Foundation since my son was saved from a terrible crisis that almost took his life and it is thanks to the Foundation that my son has a chance to live again. May Max live in all of the children the Foundation saves everyday.
    You are a true legend Max.

    Thanks to the generosity of the Max foundation, my father survives today with CML. I from India would not have been able to meet the cost of glivec without the timely intervention by the foundation. A deep gratitude to all involved with this humanitarian and noble mission of saving lives. The Spirit of Max lives on in countless survivors today.

    Sir,my wife 32 age,has PROXIMAL JEJUNAL TUMOUR at DJ JUNCTION (GIST) .It is removed by SURGERY. pathological report is TUMOUR SIZE 4.5cm.MITOTIC RATE 4/50.STAGE T2N0M0..Doctor advised to take IMATINIB 400 mg for 2 there any serious side effects of IMATINIB?..i am worying whether to take Imatnib or not?.how much chance is there of reccurence if not taking Imatinib? It is suitable to take treatment after reccuring GIST. Please suggest me..

    1. Sudha Samineni says:

      Apologies for the late response. We strongly advise you to consult your treating Oncologist. Meanwhile our patient advocate from the Friends of Max GIST group has this to offer by way of advice:

      1. Imatinib is a well-tolerated drug, since your wife is young she should do well with it. Consult your Oncologist for side-effects management.
      It is important to mange the side effects well in order to get maximum benefits of the drug.

      2. It is important to take Imatinib as a adjuvant therapy as prescribed by your doctor to prevent recurrence.

      3. Recurrence chances will be high if Imatinib is not taken as per advice.

    It is really nice see such events happening and at this rate of success.
    We are also in the healthcare sector providing free of cost counseling service to patients and their families. In our vision to empower common mass related to their decisions regarding choosing doctor and hospital , we are furthering our step to empower cancer patients by uniting them and giving them a platform to share their stories of struggle and hope.
    For this purpose we are in the process of getting acquainted with patients and their families to know them better and understand their needs.
    You being the volunteer to such noble cause can be of great help to us, and I sincerely think with your help we can contribute what we have thought to this cause.
    Hoping to hear from you soon!

    I am living with CML since 2003 and I am on Glivec since then. But for some side effects I am as normal as anyone without CML which was possible with the help of Max Foundation and Friends of Max I am now 73years old and with the help of Max Foundation I am living as if I don’t have any ailments. Although I am also a patient of ca prostate. I got a great support from Max Foundation and my wife and daughters even my grand children also supported. The best part I have experienced is Friends Of Max which has encouraged me to live the way I am living.

  15. Rakesh sharma says:

    25 Years with CML and yet looking forward for many more with much more brighter SMILE.
    It was never a trouble for me. Initially like every phase of life there were some difficulties with me too, but sooner things get in there on own places. Then it took a completely different turn when i attended first “Friends of Max” meeting. It was really a cherrishing moment for me to have such beautiful people around me. I have completed 25 years with all my job satisfaction along with family and friends support. Will be looking forward to cherrish many more years just like this only. Thank you “Friends Of Max”

    I am a patient of CML, diagnosed in June 1983. I am immensely happy and also emotional that FOM is enquiring about our feelings….. I had been a loan sufferer both physically (bone marrow test) and mentally (because of the price of the medicine) professionally (work load was heavy, inter state transfers) family wise (wife’s expectations were more vis -a-vis my financial well being)…. the saga goes like this… By the grace of God I am now 59 with a hope to live with the support of NIMS Hyderabad, Telangana, india
