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!
Last week we published the CLL Society Tribune chock full of articles, remembrances, creative efforts, news, research, our survey and the results of our last survey.
For anyone deciding about first CLL therapy, including hematologists, the interview and abstract from ASH 2018 with Dr. Tait Shanafelt, the principle investigator of the large ECOG multi-center trial that proved Ibrutinib based therapy was superior to FCR for almost all treatment naïve patients should be required reading.
But there is much more to read in the Tribune. Check it out.
