Chronic Myeloid Leukemia
Last updated: September 2022
I went to my primary care physician in Sept. 2008 and he ordered the blood tests as he did each year. He called to tell me that something was not right and that he would refer me to a specialist. I was called and had further tests and found out to my surprise that I had CML. I was immediately put on the medication Gleevec. Now all these years later I am still in remission, praise God! But I tell everyone how important that yearly doctor visit is, because it may have saved my life!
What blood cancer were you diagnosed with?
