  1. CML. In "real life," I've only met one other person with it. She lives in the next town over from me and we have the same birthday, oddly enough.

    1. If you ever need to talk, let me know. There are so few of us CMLers in the world. I'm very fortunate that I see a CML specialist who is very understanding and listens. I'm on my second TKI--from time to time the numbers fluctuate but back on track. Fatigue is a big problem and skin issues among other problems. Plowing through. Take care.

    2. thank you. The offer stands for you as well.

  2. I have been diagnosed with CLL

    1. , how long have you been managing CLL? Shayla (Team Member)

    2. I have been managing for 6 years, along with ovarian cancer, breast cancer and lung cancer. It's been a journey. thankful to still be here and doing ok. Thank you!

  3. I was diagnosed with Adult ALL. While going through inpatient treatment I met someone going through Adult ALL as well. We both had to have a SCT It's been great having someone who knows first hand how all this affects you

    1. My friend and I are 4 years out from diagnoses and 3 years from our bone marrow transplants and talk often. So many things come up that challenge your resolve, it has been priceless to have her to talk to.

    2. Its always nice and someone close by who understands exactly what you're going through and truly understands. Your right! that's priceless and sooo valued <3

  4. Multiple Myeloma
