I am happy to share that the Q2 2016 issue of The CLL Tribune has launched! You can read it here:

It is much hard work and we are very grateful to all the patients and caregivers and doctors who contributed to it.

· Learn about what bone marrow does in The Basics Section

· In Beyond the Basics, find out about the ASCO sponsored TAPUR trial which is looking for new creative uses for already approved targeted therapies

· Learn new facts about CLL in the Did You Know section

· View some data from our most recent Reader Poll and share with us your opinions on CLL experts and whom you might recommend to other patients in our Ask & Tell section

· In Living Well with CLL, you can read about:

o Why You Should See a CLL Specialist

o How my Support Group Saved my Life

o I Don’t Have CLL. Yes, I Do. Now, I Don’t.

Stay strong.

We are all in this together.

  • Thank you Brian. Excellent reading and very informative.
