Welcome to the Second 2021 Issue of The CLL Society Tribune
Last summer, our daughter-in-law received the remnants of a half-used package of unidentified seeds from her father, which she threw into a barren garden box on the back alley behind their house. Seven-foot-high yellow sunflowers and scarlet-pink hollyhocks quickly shot up towards the sky. Swarms of whimsical wildflowers have partied non-stop at their lower stems for over a year now. Neighbors drive by slowly and say, “Wow!” While reading our patient stories here, I say, “Wow!” From color, such comfort! From hardship, such healing! From poor care, such expert care! We are grateful to our patient/ writers for letting us into their worlds. We are grateful for our science writers, even when they talk over our heads. And we are thankful that summer is here. Be strong and stay safe. We are all in this together. Happy summer!
