We invite you to attend our CLL Society Webinars
A Psychological Perspective: Dealing with the CLL Emotional Roller Coaster
Anxiety, anger, fatigue, and 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.
If you missed the CLL Society Webinar, “Money Matters: Help is There to Prevent Financial Toxicity,” you can find the webinar recording, presentation slides, and answered audience questions linked here for this important topic.
New this week!
It may not be enough to just target the cancer, we might need to target where it lives. Dr. Yucai Wang looks at these issues in CLL and Richter’s Transformation.
The Transcend 004 trial offers a CAR-T living drug very similar to what Brian Koffman received. Learn more.
Tired? You are not alone. See Dr. Koffman’s latest blog post.
