A Psychological Perspective: Dealing with the CLL Emotional Roller Coaster
Anxiety, anger, fatigue, depression, are just some of the emotions/symptoms we may experience after diagnosis. Join us to talk about what CLL patients may face and how to manage the emotional roller coaster. Register here.
New this week!
If you were told that at the end of one-year of treatment 23/25 (92%) of mostly high risk patients were in a complete remission with no chemo, would you guess the treatment that got that kind of results was a combo of venetoclax and ibrutinib (V+I)? To read more about another V+I trial, please watch Dr. Koffman’s ASH interview with Dr. Nitin Jain.
Also, the Cancer Support Community has recently expanded their CSC Airbnb Program.
