When CLL Goes Bad

By Bkoffman

When CLL Goes Bad
Our Breathtaking View into Yosemite Valley this WinterFriends,
I just returned home from a long weekend in Yosemite. It was touch and go whether the roads would be clear enough to get there, but we made it and it was breathtaking!
There was 9 feet of snow where we cross country skied and most of the valley had a thick dusting of white. It was so beautiful.
A week after the 2016 ASH meeting, the CLL Society held our 2nd annual CLL Patient Educational Forum at City of Hope in Duarte, CA. After the forum, I had a chance to chat with Dr. Steve Rosen about the new data that provides hope for patients whose CLL has transformed to Richter Transformation. You can read about it and watch out interview here.
ALL DONE! Thank you to the 233 who participated in our Q4 2016 Reader Poll about your experiences with Testing before Treatment. We're really anxious to dig into the data. Thank you again for your time!
