What Type of Blood Cancer Are You Diagnosed With

New here? Been with us since the beginning?

Introduce yourself below and share a little about your experience as someone living with blood cancer.

  1. Hi,my name is Arthur, I was diagnosed with cml last year,I have been on chemo 10 months and I have to start a new douse of chemo. Would like to know more about it. Went to u of m to see a cancer doctor.

    1. Hi Arthur. Wanted to say hello to a fellow CMLer. Are you on a TKI? Where is U of M? If you are able to, I would consult with a CML specialist (hematologist/oncologist) and ask him/her all the questions you need answers to. Knowledge is power. IF I can help you with anything, please let me know. I'm nearing 9 years with CML. Take care, Susan ( Team Member)

    2. why chemo & not TKIs

    1. you're right in asking your hematologists about what is right for you. We are unable to answer medical questions here, but I found this article that may be helpful regarding the drug you mention.
      Thank you for sharing about your diagnosis and experience. Please let us know if we can support you in any way.

    2. I can relate, as I accumulated a whole bin worth of this and that relating to multiple myeloma. It indeed can be overwhelming. Best!

  3. multiple myeloma

    1. thanks for your response. It looks like there are others in this thread with the sane diagnosis. If you're comfortable sharing more, it's usually helpful to talk to someone who shares your diagnosis. Are you currently in treatment now?

    2. Have you started active treatment yet? How are doing today?

  4. CML

    1. thank you for the information I will check it out. Yes we got this my family and friends are great supports and they are always telling me I am strong and will get through this, but it is always great to talk and have the support of someone that is going through it.

    2. hi kenzie, not sure you if this will help (just came across your comment recently as i have been looking to see what support is there) I came across this event happening over zoom if it is of any help, I am attending so just sharing- it is an online zoom wellbeing group for anyone dealing with cancer be it directly or in directly
