COVID-19 Updates

Spontaneous Remission of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia in a Patient with SARS-CoV-2

This should not be part of anyone’s game plan. Still, it was nice to read that for at least this one 67-year-old asymptomatic CLL patient, a case of COVID-19 associated with low blood counts and a broad spectrum of treatments resulted in his CLL becoming undetectable in his bone marrow and blood, and his scans had all returned to normal.

Living with CLL

Harness the Mind

The purpose of this article is to share how to maintain a positive attitude through a cancer journey. Understand, this is one patient’s perspective. Having been an athlete my whole life, I realize the power of the mind. While I’m not able to change what’s happening to me inside my body, how I think about it has an impact.

SPECIAL FEATURE: World CLL Day is One Month Away

World CLL Day is coming up on September 1, 2022. This year’s campaign will continue to raise awareness about how those with CLL are still vulnerable to COVID-19, especially as restrictions have been lifted around the world.
