In the not quite 3 years of this community's existence, barely a day goes by without Chris (Cllcanada) bringing us the latest developments in CLL, interspersed with lots of helpful information via replies to our posts/questions to help us live better with CLL, no matter what stage we are at. Chris also has the dubious 'benefit' of having experienced much of what CLL can throw at us; many years of W&W with terrible fatigue, eventual treatment, then barely time for a breather before Richter's Transformation and urgent treatment for that, not to mention shingles and the unpleasant side effects (some lingering) from 'test driving' all of that, which he has briefly summarised in his profile: healthunlocked.com/cllcanada
Somehow, with all of that going on, Chris manages to get out and share his joy of life through his fantastic photography. I don't think Chris's neighbourhood florist appreciates how well advertised his business is! I may not understand many of the papers Chris brings to our attention, but I'm sure I'm far from alone in opening his posts, just to see what new flower or scene he has captured and shared with us all...
Oh, I almost forgot to mention that Chris runs the CLLcanada website cllcanada.ca/, a Facebook group "Bad to the Bone" and equally shares his hard won knowledge of CLL on a number of sister CLL forums.
So many thanks Chris for your daily supply of wisdom and Hope! and may your next two decades with CLL be just a bit less adventurous.
Photo: Yesterday's heavy fog left these crystal ball droplets on flowering veldt grass. I thought that this photograph was rather appropriate to acknowledge the help of someone that has done more than anyone else in the international CLL community to help us see through the fog of a CLL diagnosis. Thanks Chris!
