Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia (JMML) is a rare form of leukemia which affects young children, generally under the age of five.

The JMML Foundation exists to find a cure for JMML, and to improve the quality of life of JMML patients and families through research, education, advocacy, and charity.


The JMML Research Roadmap was revised during the 2015 JMML International Symposium.  Three questions have been answered, and others have come to light since our last update.
