  • The emotional needs of the newly diagnosed CLL patient are massively neglected particularly in the UK (not sure if the US do better) so this is a very important subject.


  • Yes, I was given a booklet about CLL by the Haematologist and then went home to tell my husband the diagnosis.🙁

  • I can't connect to this one either--this is the second from Patient Power that i can't access--I have an aging Mac, so may be my need to update.

  • I cannot connect either cllady01. 2nd time for me also. I have Android tablet on it dosent seem to matter how old.


  • I am trying to see if I can view it on the patient power site--so far no luck.

  • tried from google with the link--it is there, but I can't access.

  • Here is the direct video link...

    If your Mac is running Snow Leopard or older there are no updates for new video drivers etc.
