Newsletter with Dr. Jones on Venetoclax, Dr. Jacobs on the TAPUR trial, patient & caregivers articles, & a survey on what makes a CLL expert


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.

Please take a read (lots of good stuff) and also give us your opinion on what makes a CLL specialist from your perspective.

The content includes:

· Reading/viewing an interview with Dr. Jeff Jones about Venetoclax from the recent EHA meeting in Copenhagen in Conference Coverage

· Read answers to reader questions by Dr. Rick Furman in Ask the Doctor

· 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.

o On Being a Novice Patient

o May I Remember Never To Forget

Happy reading!

In the meantime….

Stay strong.

We are all in this together.

Thanks Brian, for an even more packed Tribune. I highly recommend everyone read 'Why You Should See a CLL Specialist'; where Terry Evans describes his experiences with first his specialist, a well respected local hematologist/oncologist and then with his CLL specialist:



Thank you Brian. Excellent reading and very informative.
