ALMA is a patient organization based in Buenos Aires / Argentina whose mission is to provide emotional and practical support to leukemia patients. To fulfill our mission we develop different programs, the principal ones being:
- Comprehensive Patient Education: different professionals provide workshops on diagnosis, types of treatments, monitoring studies, adverse effects management, looking for an expert patient.
- Spreading Life: we hold patient meetings in different cities of the country, forming ALMA patient groups.
- Emotional containment: coordinated by our psychooncologists, we give the professional support that patients require.
- Advocacy support: we defend patients’ right in relation to their treatments and studies.
ALMA currently represents 68 members or patients with CLL (information as of September 2020).
