"Our activities are aimed at the well-being of people who suffer from vascular malformations like CMTC ('Van Lohuizen syndrome') and to stimulate the scientific research of these afflictions."
An example of the many activities which we are performing. With special thanks to Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits) for allowing the use of his music.
Our global member meeting was held on the 14th of November 2015 in the Netherlands.
A total of 126 people from 10 countries was present.
On Saturday the 27th of June we organised the Dutch CMTC-OVM family day again! This year we had chosen the Efteling!
It was perfect in all aspects!
We're thrilled to announce a new partnership that will bring our resources in front of ‘The Mighty’ wide-reaching readership.
'The Mighty' is a story-based global health community focused on improving the lives of people facing disease, disorder, mental illness and disability. On the website of 'The Mighty' the personal stories of these people are published. One can find stories about people with for example diabetes, autism or hemangioma. The partnership with 'the Mighty' means that a CMTC-OVM homepage has been created within their website. We will now have a growing CMTC-OVM home page on 'The Mighty' and appear on many stories on the site.
On Wednesday 19th October we received the sad news of the sudden death of Prof. Dr. Arnold Oranje. He was our first medical advisor and he diagnosed in 1993 Elvira, the daughter of president Lex van der Heijden with CMTC. This eventually led to the foundation our CMTC Association.
We wish his family and friends a lot of strength to cope with this great loss.
The program and the registration for our annual global CMTC-OVM Conference are available! We organize this year up to 9 parallel sessions and we still are working on additional speakers! In 2015 we had 126 participants from 10 countries!
We offer this year an extra medical diagnosis option in the University Hospital in Rotterdam.
