Welcome to the Fourth 2018 Issue of The CLL Society Tribune
At this time of year, one cannot miss the bright lights of Hanukkah candles and Christmas decor. They are beacons of unity, thanksgiving, and hope…just the things the CLL Society embodies. We bring patients, caregivers, and blood cancer specialists together through our website, educational forums, patient support groups, interviews with specialists around the world, and more—including this quarterly newsletter.
We are thankful for the patients and caregivers who share their experiences, for the doctors who provide us with insights on our disease, and the researchers who share information about the latest in blood cancer research. And, we are so hopeful for a cure. Over this last year, many have benefitted from new therapies and our knowledge of CLL has increased exponentially. We invite you to share in the spirit of thanksgiving and hope through this last issue of the year of The CLL Tribune. Because we’re all in this together. If you or a loved one has been helped by the CLL Society, please consider making a donation.
