The World’s Leading Authority for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Patients

Shakespeare, Meet Leukemia

In science and medicine, information is constantly changing and may become out-of-date as new data emerge. All articles and interviews are informational only, should never be considered medical advice, and should never be acted on without review with your health care team.

Doreen Zetterlund is a long-time CLL patient advocate and member of the CLL Society Patient & Caregiver Support Group in California.

In this article, published by Cancer Health, Doreen talks about her life after her diagnosis of small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL), and how it changed her priorities.

Doreen took a break from her love of acting and the theater to educate herself on the disease, expert physicians, treatments, and clinical trials.

She has set a strong example in our CLL community by relentlessly frontloading knowledge to be certain that she will be well informed about her best possible care, regardless of how her CLL might evolve.

From King Lear, Doreen shares: “Thy life’s a miracle”.

We think you will enjoy reading her story.
