Music or at  leas t the blues after a CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) diagnosisFriends,
We are doing something entirely different- a feel good musical story of triumph after diagnosis and treatment.
This week in the Living Well with CLL/Taking Charge section of our website, we’ve posted an article highlighting a Canadian CLL patient living in Nova Scotia, Derek Caine, (aka Little Derek) who despite his diagnosis, expanded his world to include music and composition. You can read more about his story and listen to his musical endeavors here.
There are some great learning opportunities coming up:

In early June, I am off to EHA and honored to be speaking in front off the European hematology community, sharing the stage with Drs. Jeff Jones and Paulo Ghia and Stefan Stilgenbauer on the topic: The evolution of CLL management – is it time to re-evaluate our approach? I am bringing our small crew and will report the latest news.
In the meantime….
Stay strong.
We are all in this together.
