I Thought It Was CLL

Last updated: September 2022

It was scary as my dad passed away from Leukemia. 2020 I started getting sick. I was out on Imbruvica & many symptoms were helped. In 2022 my oncologist retired. My new oncologist informed me I had WM-Waldenstrom’s! It was confirmed from a previous bone marrow biopsy. So now I’m learning about a rare lymphoma, Waldenstrom’s. Lots of twists & turns but overall doing well & my oncologist is informed & caring.
