Living with CLL

If you are a veteran, active-duty military, or a care partner and would be interested in joining a CLL Society Support Group for veterans / active-duty military, please complete this brief survey to indicate your interest in participating and help us identify the best time for meeting.

CLL Advocate Network (CLLAN), a global network of CLL patient organizations including CLL Society, surveyed nonprofits around the world to understand what support services and resources are offered to individuals impacted by CLL / SLL. The information collected was used to build a global resource hub. Patients and care partners can access the resource hub for free on the CLLAN website.

Join CLL Society for our webinar Treatment for CLL: When is the Right Time to Start? Many individuals diagnosed with CLL do not require immediate treatment upon diagnosis. Instead, they will be closely monitored during a period of Active Surveillance until it becomes necessary to initiate treatment. The decision to begin treatment can be complex and varies from person to person. Several factors are considered when determining the right time to start treatment for CLL, including the presence of symptoms, personal disease features, and the individual’s overall health and preferences.

Join the CLL Society and Nurse Practitioner Laura Zitella, who will discuss the timing of CLL treatment and the various factors to consider when navigating your disease journey. You will learn about the right time to start treatment, the signs and symptoms to report to your healthcare provider, and strategies to improve common symptoms such as fatigue, painful lymph nodes, and more.
