Most of the people in the CURE panel on The Treatment Landscape of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
and the other 4 short videos are part of the CLL Society team:
- Ian Flinn out of Sarah Cannon Research Institute and Tennessee Oncology in Nashville is on our medical advisory board.
- Doreen Zetterlund is the back-up facilitator for our City of Hope, Duarte CA patient and caregiver support group.
- Nathan Ferguson is a nurse who co-facilitates our Nashville patient and caregiver support group.
- Lisa Ferguson is Nathan’s caregiver.
This is a series of videos that to its credit gets not just the doctor’s, but also the nurse’s and patient’s and caregiver’s input on all these important subjects:
- Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia: Risks and Complications
- The Indolent Nature of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
- Addressing Physical and Emotional Fatigue in CLL
- Chemotherapy-Free Therapy for CLL: Communication and Adherence
Overall, they make up a nice collection of introductory videos that explains how much the chronic lymphocytic leukemia treatment has advanced and moved away from chemotherapy, but equally importantly, also examines the psychological journey we all take with this chronic disease from the patient’s and caregiver’s perspectives.
I feel lucky to know many of these people.
We are all in this together.
