June 21, the day for the fight against blood diseases
Promoted as every year by AIL, the National Day against leukemia, lymphomas and myeloma represents a very important moment of meeting and reflection.
It is a time chosen to promote information and attention on the treatment of blood diseases, while at the same time knowing what the progress of scientific research is.
The individual AIL sections promote and organize meetings, events and numerous initiatives locally.
Here are some for 2017 :
> Toll-free number for information : an important service offered by the AIL, within the National Day, is the Toll-free number - AIL haematological problems 800226524 .
A call center active from 8.00 am to 8.00 pm, dedicated to the questions of patients to which some of the most illustrious Italian hematology doctors respond.
> The project "Sognando Itaca" : this is a great trip by sailboat in the Tyrrhenian Sea, from June 5th to 21st, with professional skippers, patients, doctors, nurses and psychologists traveling together and navigating with the aim of making known the importance of therapy, in this case of the singular sail-therapy.
