Our new 9/22 beanie hat is here ready for the winter. 

A black beanie hat with the white 9/22 design - as modelled by Gail. 

Why 9/22? 

Most cases of CML start during cell division, when DNA is "swapped" between chromosomes 9 and 22. Part of chromosome 9 goes to 22 and part of 22 goes to 9. The swapping of DNA between the chromosomes leads to the formation of a new gene (an oncogene) called BCR-ABL. This gene then produces the BCR-ABL protein, which is the type of protein called a tyrosine kinase. This protein causes CML cells to grow and divide out of control.

The logo, which is found on the right side of the chest of this design, is the representation of chromosomes 9 and 22 - a very subtle way of acknowledging CML.
