Stories and Testimonials
There are some things that only one patient can tell another. This is where you will find patients and caregivers sharing their most personal stories and their best advice about how they have survived their illness.
One Patient's Powerful Story
My friend and fellow CLL patient and long-time member of our local Orange County CLL Support Group, Terry Evans shares his real-life experience with being in clinical trials. Terry offers practical advice about why and how to choose a clinical trial.
Thank you, Terry.
Terry is giving us the personal side of the equipoise issue raised in clinical trial designs.
Please read Dr. Susan O’Brien’s blunt ASCO 2013 post citing the unreasonableness and tragedy of disallowing crossovers in certain clinical trials.
We are happy to say that since the scare and stress that Terry faced in the RESONATE trial, today, crossovers are becoming the norm in cancer trials.
When appropriate, the CLL Society will be posting updates and background information on the present Coronavirus pandemic focusing on reliable primary sources of information and avoiding most of the news that is not directly from reliable medical experts or government and world health agencies.
