Today on the CLL Society website, we share Kyle Cleveland’s account of life after being thrust into the role of caregiver when his wife Laura was diagnosed with CLL during her second pregnancy. His experience will be quite similar to others as they navigate the ups and downs of diagnosis, treatment and life after CLL walks in the door. Please take a look here to see the Kyle’s entertaining but practical account of being a CLL caregiver.
Although it is 4 weeks away, we’re busy filling our schedule with meetings with other CLL and Lymphoma organizations, reviewing abstracts and scheduling interviews at the American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting in Orlando. Simultaneously, we are putting together the next issue of The CLL Tribune, due out after ASH. If you haven’t had a chance to peruse the first issue, you can access it here.
SAVE THE DATE: If you live in the Los Angeles area, please consider attending a post-ASH patient education forum and CLL Society LA support group launch in conjunction with City of Hope. The meeting is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 12, 2015. You can access the flyer here and pre-registration is requested. We look forward to meeting you there.
Please consider answering 5 questions about the CLL Society website in our Reader Poll which can be found in the Ask & Tell section. Our goal is to fulfill the unmet needs of the CLL community, so we always welcome your feedback and questions.
Finally, if you are receiving this email through a CLL Society Alert, you are all set. If you are receiving this through another method and haven’t already, please sign up here. Also, please forward this email to a fellow patient or caregiver who might benefit from knowing more about CLL. Leading up to ASH, we will be posting a backlog of great lectures and interviews and articles on CLL. This alert is your best friend in knowing what new material we have posted.
We are all this together
