Hairy Cell Leukemia

Hi All! Has anyone gone through treatment for hairy cell leukemia?

  1. Welcome! We've had a few articles written about this, here's one for starters:

    1. thank you for this. I’ve had HCL since 2007, and there aren’t that many of us, especially women. I was hoping to be of support to others who may be facing it for their first time. I’ve been through treatment 3 times. I appreciate your connection!

      1. Again, welcome to the community for sure your story can be a shining light for others going through HCL and seeking that support because frankly I never heard of this until I did a little research to see how yep this is yet another blood cancer scenario. Wishing you the very best and look forward to your insight!

      2. thanks so much!! In all honesty, I knew absolutely nothing about HCL when I was diagnosed, and it took several years after diagnosis before I met someone else who shared the diagnosis. Now I know several. I'm looking forward to getting to know you, hearing your blood cancer story, and sharing this journey. Thanks for reaching out!
