Every year, AIL organizes a number of important fundraising and awareness events.
These events have become a tradition for all AIL supporters and are AIL’s lifeblood.
The funds raised meet social and scientific needs. We use them not only to provide assistance to patients and promote research, but also to raise the level of awareness of blood disease issues.
Much has been done over the last few years, but there is so much more to do!
Poinsettias Day - “Stelle di Natale”
Cultivating life. Join us! Research gets a boost!
Since 1989 AIL volunteers has turned red Italian streets and squares to sell poinsettias in order to support AIL and generate awareness around leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma
Easter Eggs - “Uova di Pasqua”
We’re in the streets and squares of Italy’s towns and cities, so tie a knot in your handkerchief. Nearly 4,000 “piazzas” around Italy are “patrolled” by our volunteers.
It is one of the most noteworthy of AIL events directed toward the Italian public at large.
The National Day against Leukaemia, Lymphoma and Myeloma
To highlight the important role played by scientific research in the field of blood cancers. Treatment for leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma is currently undergoing a “magic moment”. In recent years, the extraordinary results of research have led to increasingly effective treatments, including cell stem transplants and “intelligent” drugs
When dialogue creates success!
Since 2005 AIL has been organizing “interactive meetings” for patients and families. These seminaries have become a fixed date in the agendas of patients and are now planned to take in an itinerary consisting of many locations. They are an extremely important occasion for many since they provide an opportunity to meet up with the top experts and practitioners and to participate in an informal discussion regarding their quality life, new therapies, patient treatment options etc.
AIL CLM Patient Support Group
The Group was established on October 16th 2009. From the beginning it has been working to distribute information and raise awareness of CML to patients and caregivers and to promote and support research.
It’s is entirely made of patients and families, and it hasn’t got the aim to work instead of doctors, but to help patients to cope with the their illness, to share their experience with fellow sufferers. We have also developed a website providing information on CML and a forum only opened to patients, a “virtual square” where they freely contribute to the various discussions and communicate directly with other forum members.
